Tides Canada exploring potential for greenest city fund

Tides Canada is exploring with the Vancouver Foundation and the City of Vancouver the potential of establishing a fund to help Vancouver become the greenest city in the world by 2020.

As currently envisioned, the fund would focus on innovative solutions related to energy savings, reducing urban greenhouse gas emissions, supporting sustainable food systems and creating employment training opportunities related to "green jobs".

“Vancouver is situated in an exceptional natural environment and is internationally praised as one of the most liveable cities in the world,” said Sarah Goodman, Vice President of Business Development and Services with Tides Canada. “By building a partnership of businesses, local non-profits, individual and institutional philanthropists and local government, we can support new models of green innovation that can bolster our economy, address social inequities and improve our environment.”

Tides Canada’s participation in the project, to assess the viability of the fund, is made possible thanks to support from the Bullitt Foundation.
