Event description

Description

The Bachelors of Arts in Management and the Sustainability Series continue delivering in 2020 great topics with amazing speakers. Next January 15, Marian Town, Director, Environment at Vancouver Airport Authority will join us at CityU Canada to share with us her experience on YVR’s climate action plan.

Airports are connectors -linking people to their loved ones, improving business and educational opportunities and to enable opportunities for experiences in places other than our own home base. They also rapidly connect a variety of goods and equipment that are time-sensitive.

Good airports also connect with their communities and great ones reflect them. Your airport -YVR- is an airport that has worked hard to reflect this community. From its not for profit governance structure though to its commitments to accessibility, diversity and environmental responsibility, the Vancouver Airport Authority is committed to the safe, sustainable operation of an airport you can be proud of.

YVR has been working continuously to reduce its environmental footprint and will be excited to share how we’ve worked to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption, waste and become the first Salmon-Safe certified airport in the world. Come join Marion Town, YVR’s Director of Environment in a conversation about how your airport is working to deliver you to your destination in ways that should delight you.
