Saving money and saving the environment? Yes, it can be done – and this event will show you how.

You might already know about the Climate Leadership Plan, the made-in-Alberta strategy that’s helping the province reduce its emissions and diversify its economy. But did you know that it’s also helping non-profit organizations save money in the process? For example, Energy Efficiency Alberta – which began rolling out programs in 2017 – has already supported 260 different non-profit organizations in Alberta through three different programs, while seven others have received grants. And it’s just getting started.

Now it’s your turn to tap into this support. At this exciting event you’ll get the chance to hear from Shannon Phillips, the Minister of Environment and Parks and the Minister Responsible for the Climate Change Office, and David Dodge, Board Chair at Energy Efficiency Alberta, to learn more about the opportunities that Energy Efficiency Alberta and the Climate Leadership Plan are creating for organizations just like yours.
