BC Chamber adopts Sechelt policy

Clean Technology

The Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce presented a policy entitled Clean Technology and the Renewable, Sustainable Energy Sector in B.C. at the BC Chamber of Commerce annual general meeting and conference, May 24 to 26 in Prince George.

The Sechelt Chamber authored this policy in the hopes of encouraging the B.C. government to look at clean technologies and the sustainable energy sector in the same way that it looks at the carbon-based fuel sector. At the AGM, Chamber delegates from across B.C. voted in favour of this policy, making it official BC Chamber policy, and the BC Chamber will advocate it to appropriate tiers of government.

“The Sechelt Chamber is to be commended for the leadership they have shown in bringing this important issue to the provincial body,” stated John Winter, president and CEO of the BC Chamber. “We recognize that our future economic success will depend upon being at the forefront of the renewable and green economy. This policy places the Chamber in a leadership position to engage government on this issue.”

“The Sechelt Chamber is proud to have taken this policy forward to our peers from across the province,” said president Kim Darwin. “Our Chamber would like to see B.C. implement a plan to place B.C. as a leader in all aspects of the new global green economy and we think this policy will help achieve that. We sincerely appreciate the support from our peer Chambers.”
