7th Annual Evening of Recognition
June 5 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm$20
You are invited to join us and celebrate the accomplishments of our members at our Seventh Annual Evening of Recognition. These local businesses, institutions and non-profit organizations are leading the way toward a more resilient, healthy and prosperous future for our communities while creating long-term success for themselves. The biggest business sustainability event of the year in Burlington, Hamilton and surrounding areas, the evening attracts more than 150 business and community leaders.
In 2018 the IPCC broke the news that the outlook for climate change impacts is worse than expected. Companies are responding by racing to bring ambitious climate solutions to the mainstream. Blockchain and the Internet of Things are improving supply chain monitoring, efficiency gains in renewable energy have made it more affordable than ever, and industry leaders and innovators are changing the way we think about product lifecycles with a circular economy perspective. At the same time, policy makers are fighting to bring focus where it is needed, with tools like the Sustainable Development Goals framework. We now have a deeper cultural and technological toolkit to apply to climate action than ever before, but we can’t afford to wait: the toolkit we have now is the one we must use to safeguard our future.
So join us on June 5th to celebrate the companies, organizations and community members that are leading the transition to a low-carbon economy by applying the tools we have now to make the difference we need now. Who embrace the opportunity to take action created by the climate crisis rather than waiting for a future time, future government or future technology – because our future is now.
