Marc Jaccard comes clean
New Westminster's Mark Jaccard, an environmental economist at Simon Fraser University, is one of 50 Canadians named to the Clean50 list of outstanding leaders in sustainable development and clean capitalism.
The list was compiled by executive search firm Delta Management from more than 500 candidates in 16 award categories in business, government and education.
"For 25 years, Mark has combined his international experiences in energy and environment analysis and policy with his training of graduate students," said Jaccard's profile which also noted his role in authoring a sustainable energy policy in the Global Energy Assessment at the 2012 Rio Earth Summit.
"I appreciate being recognized for my efforts to combine training of the next generation of experts with my climate policy advisory work for governments and my public engagement," said Jaccard in a press release.
He'll receive his award on Wednesday at the Clean50 summit in Toronto.
