Former Prime Minister to speak at province’s Environmental Sector conference

Rt. Hon. Joe Clark to be the keynote speaker at Newleef 2013

ST. JOHN’S, NL – The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) is pleased to announce Rt. Hon. Joe Clark as the keynote speaker for Newleef 2013: Adapting to a Changing Environment, taking place on October 10-11 in St. John’s, NL.

“We are excited to welcome Mr. Clark to speak at our annual green economy conference,” said Ted Lomond, Executive Director of NEIA. “Mr. Clark is an expert in the area of corporate social responsibility, and as Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition he has had experience making policy decisions at the highest levels. His address will be of great interest and value to our audience.”

Newleef is an annual conference organized by NEIA which is aimed at building new relationships within the green economy in the province; strengthening existing ones; identifying business opportunities; energizing participants in the sector; and learning from one another. The forum features two days of presentations and interactive sessions, a ‘Green Showcase’ tradeshow, a chance to see first-hand exciting local research in the environmental field, and an evening social at the Newman Wine Vaults.

The focus for Newleef 2013 is ‘adaptation’. “Our focus will be on how businesses in the environmental sector of Newfoundland and Labrador’s economy can adapt and grow through a changing climate, changing markets, changing regulations and processes, changing technologies, and changing corporate expectations,” says Lomond. “We look forward to Mr. Clark’s insight on corporate responsibility as it pertains to the environment.”

Canada’s 16th Prime Minister, Clark has had a distinguished and influential career in Canadian politics, and has since been active internationally as the architect of a series of significant Canadian initiatives in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. Clark is very active in international business and governance as the founder and chairman of a company harvesting underwater timber in Ghana and as director of the BDA foundation, which teaches Congolese farmers to harvest and market medicinal plants.

“The businesses and organizations in Newfoundland and Labrador that are driving the growth of the green economy can learn from the commitment and passion Mr. Clarke has shown in all of his initiatives,” said Lomond.

NEIA is a not-for-profit association of businesses that promotes the growth and development of the environmental industry in this province, offering a diverse range of expert knowledge and services in the business of mitigating and minimizing environmental damage for the protection and enhancement of the environment for present and future generations. NEIA has over 140 members.
