reThink Green project aims to "build the low-carbon economy"
Sudbury - To celebrate Earth Day, reThink Green has launched Green Economy North as the hub of Greater Sudbury's low carbon economy. This target-based sustainability program for business is the first of its kind
in Northern Ontario.
"Green Economy North helps businesses and organizations realize the competitive advantage of becoming environmentally sustainable," said Rebecca Danard, Executive Director of reThink Green. "We work directly with our members, helping to build a plan, access expertise, and make changes which strengthen their bottom line."
Green Economy North will launch Earth Day, Friday April 22nd in Sudbury. This program will build Sudbury’s Low-Carbon Economy by working directly with businesses and organizations to maximize the economic benefit of sustainability. Project organizers from reThink Green are hosting a public event to celebrate the launch.
Longtime community and political organizer Richard Eberhardt will lead the project ahead of an April 22nd launch. As Program Manager of Green Economy North, Eberhardt will encourage sustainable business as a way to meet both environmental and economic goals.
Caleigh Yaworsky, in her final year of Cambrian College’s Public Relations program, will support the program launch as Social Media and Events Coordinator.
Executive Director Rebecca Danard is thrilled with the new energy behind the project.
“We are so excited to have a growing team to bring this initiative to life,” said Danard. “Sudbury is one step closer to a more sustainable future.”
