  • Saint Mary’s University
  • Mount Saint Vincent University
  • Memorial University

What is the “green economy” you ask?

Against a backdrop of climate change, resource scarcity, the massive loss of biodiversity and a variety of other environmental issues, business as usual is increasingly risky for the future of our economy. While the green economy was initially driven by environmental imperatives, today, it is equally driven by the realization that a green economy opens up new possibilities for innovation and growth. It is no longer about the environment versus the economy. This realization is at the heart of an emerging “green economy.”
