Climate Smart Chambers

What is a Climate Smart Chamber?

With national carbon pricing expected throughout Canada in 2018, businesses will have to start thinking about carbon costs the same way they think about labour, energy or the other costs of doing business. Managing this new cost line well will lead to a competitive advantage. Managing it poorly can hurt the bottom line and leave opportunities on the table.

The St. John’s Board of Trade has been selected by The Canadian Chamber of Commerce, as one of three Chambers across the country, to participate in a pilot program called Climate Smart Chambers.

What does this mean for you as a member?
