One of the biggest untold stories about our economy is that the cleantech industry is the fastest growing industry in Canada. The David Suzuki Foundation and the Pacific Institute for Climate co-hosted this event in Vancouver to find out how creating the solutions for environmental challenges is creating economic opportunity.

Canadian leader in the rapidly expanding cleantech economy, Céline Bak, shared her insights on Canada's advantage in clean technology, and how to build on this momentum towards a clean and prosperous future. Cleantech business leaders joined in a post-presentation discussion and audience-participation question and answer session.
