Welcome to the Richmond Hill Board of Trade’s Sustainability Blog.
In an ongoing effort to support Richmond Hill’s business community, the Board’s sustainability working group is taking steps toward providing its members with relevant, proven and practical resources in addressing environmental challenges.
By now, climate change is widely recognized as a scientific fact with its impact on our daily lives, our communities, and the broader global economic landscape. While there are concrete and tangible steps that can be taken to turn the tide, many of the available solutions are seen as disruptive measures in the short term. Perhaps it is the short term price that has made it so difficult for governments, corporations, and individuals to take the necessary steps and pay the short term price. RHBOT’s Sustainability Working Group understands this reality and will be taking practical steps in supporting our local business communities to make the necessary changes to create a sustainable business community. Our guiding principle will be practicality over lofty ambition.
Over the coming months, you will hear from a number of subject matter experts in different fields and from different disciplines who will provide practical and actionable recommendations and resources for making our business community more resilient and competitive.
