CN’S CARBON REDUCTION PROJECT FOR BUSINESS 2018
CARBON INTERN 2018
The Prince George Chamber of Commerce is ecstatic to welcome to the team Louisa Hadley, a UNBC Graduate student. Already Louisa has launched carbon footprint analyses projects with a few local businesses, with even more planned this summer.
Louisa was a student in UNBC’s “Carbon Management” course this past term, which taught her valuable skills on how to investigate, analyze and interpret carbon footprints from a variety of business structures. Soon, Louisa will present her analysis conclusions to our new business volunteers, along with future recommendations on how to lower their unique carbon footprints. Louisa assists committed businesses in understanding and reducing their carbon footprints. Four businesses/projects have indicated that they wish to become carbon neutral this year.
Currently, the program is looking for more business volunteers for the Winter 2019 (January) intake. If you are interested please contact, email@example.com for further details.

The Chamber is pleased to facilitate another amazing venture for local businesses, a FREE carbon footprint analyses. Since 2015, CN has funded the Chamber to facilitate this project. The Chamber proudly expedites local member businesses to interact with UNBC’s “Carbon Management: Sustainable Business in a Carbon-Constrained World.” The class analyses current business data as part of an experiential learning opportunity for students.
Businesses receive marketable data and recommendations on how they can reduce operational expenses. What an opportunity!
We wish to thank all of our participating businesses for the hours they donated to gain information on how to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. The Winter 2018 intake of volunteers included:
|Ø Aboriginal Business Development Centre||Ø Rozon Family Dental|
|Ø Prince George Driving For Life Academy||Ø Serengeti Northern BC|
|Ø Prince George Hospice Society||Ø Mills Speedee|
