IN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT'S ongoing talks on addressing climate change, a new group has come together to provide possible solutions regarding the transformation of Canada’s environment.

The founding members of The Low Carbon Partnership, include Climate Smart, Sustainability CoLab, the Natural Step and QUEST – Quality Urban Energy Systems of Tomorrow, came together “in an effort to help the Government of Canada reach its Paris Agreement climate goals and accelerate the nation’s shift to a low-carbon economy,” a June 28 press release from the group indicated.

Brent Gilmour, executive director at QUEST, said in a phone interview with The Lobby Monitor that the group is focused on helping people use energy for their daily needs more effectively and efficiently. He added that each partner works not only with local governments but also utilities, the owners and operators of buildings, school boards, and transportation authorities, among others.
