Why Should I Care about the Green Economy? Mon Jun 17, Duke of YOrk

Why Should I Care about the Green Economy?- Eventbrite

[This event in Toronto is forwarded by a member, and relates to the HAT Book Club topic July 6]


Have ideas on how to make Canada greener? Join us on Monday, June 17, at the Duke of York, and have them heard. If you just want to sit, listen, and have a drink, that’s fine too.  As always, the event is free.
Please RSVP using our Eventbrite page. Doors open 7:00, discussion starts at 7:30.
Conventional wisdom in Canada suggests that environmentalism comes at the cost of national wealth, and a drop in our standard of living.  Jim Harris, former leader of the federal Green party, author of two best-selling novels, and avid blogger, thinks this is a false dichotomy. 

He writes that “companies are applying a central guiding principle to their business sustainability strategies [and they] derive economic benefits from improved environmental and social outcomes." In other words, corporate social responsibility is delivering results to the bottom line. 

Jim will be joined by Brett Wills from Partners in Project Green.  Together they will lead a discussion on how businesses can take a leadership role in environmentalism despite the absence of political motivation.
