The Regional District of Nanaimo received an honourable mention for corporate operations in the Community Energy Association’s 2012 Climate and Energy Action Awards.
The award recognizes the regional memorandum of agreement between the RDN and member municipalities for corporate emission reduction projects.
“The RDN board is continually working toward regional sustainability in all areas, so we are extremely proud to be recognized as a leader in corporate operations,” said Joe Stanhope, RDN chairman. “On behalf of the board I would like to thank the Community Energy Association for presenting us with this important award.”
The RDN received the recognition for demonstrating leadership to achieve a visionary collaboration and binding commitment, and for demonstrating a creative response to carbon neutrality and corporate offsets by keeping climate action funds within the region.
The Climate and Energy Action Awards are organized annually by the Community Energy Association in partnership with the Province of British Columbia, Union of B.C. Municipalities, B.C. Hydro and FortisBC.
