As part of its plan to curb greenhouse gas emissions, the District has picked a team of local experts to help craft policy to reduce the town’s carbon footprint.
Dora Gunn, municipal sustainability co-ordinator, said while those chosen come from a variety of organizations, they will be advising as individuals and not representing their groups’ interests.
On Oct. 8, Gunn revealed the people chosen for the team are:
Meredith Adler, executive director, Student Energy
Ian Bruce, director of science and policy, David Suzuki Foundation
Luisa Burhenne, sustainability strategist, GHG Accounting
Bob Deeks, president, RDC Fine Homes
Fred Ghatala, director for carbon and sustainability, Advanced Biofuels Canada
Emma Jarrett, manager of management systems, Squamish Terminals
Ian Picketts, Quest University faculty
Doug Rae, business development, Carbon Engineering
The District still has two slots for the team open. Gunn said they hope to fill them with a representative for youth and with a member of the Squamish Nation.
