Calling all eco-innovators
The Royal Canadian Geographical Society, in partnership with 3M Canada, has launched a new award to recognize individuals in business, government, academia or community organizations who are making groundbreaking contributions to preserving and protecting Canada’s environment.
The Canadian Award for Environmental Innovation will be presented annually. The inaugural winner will be honoured at the Society’s College of Fellows Dinner in Ottawa on Nov. 4, 2009.
“3M is proud to be a partner in such a progressive program,” says Charles Allan, vice-president of corporate sales and marketing at 3M Canada. “It is our hope that this award will be a catalyst for change and help create healthy communities nationwide.”
The public is invited to submit nominations online at www.rcgs.org/environment by August 10, 2009. Three finalists will be announced in September.
