Greening Government

NCM GOVPAGES is holding its first Annual Greening Government Conference this June,  where government officials and green conscious suppliers from across Canada will have a chance to interact and share ideas on what can be done to reduce Canada’s ecological footprint on this world. If you have ideas, thoughts, or would simply like to learn,your attendance and comments are more than welcome.

For those in Building Design and Construction industry, James Young’s discussion about energy and water efficiency in building will be of particular interest.
And for all those wanting to earn by going green, Victor Fedeli’s session on benefits of Energy Conservation is a must attend.

There are many more high-profile speakers, including the Honourable Sterling Belliveau, John Whitehead, Neil Sentance, Jack Heath, and many more. For full conference agenda and speakers, go to: www.greeninggovernment.ca/agenda.html

We are encouraging everyone interested to participate and pass the word on to their colleagues. We also welcome discussion and feedback on this forum or on the LinkedIn Greening Government Group, just ask to join our network  :).

Considering that the Conference is on June 15th and 16th, right before the summer heat wave,  most of us here at NCM hope that someone will have a brilliant idea on how to stay cool this summer without wasting too much energy and natural resource.

Thank you, and hope to see you at the Conference!
