CONTENTS ISSUE 02/17
Welcome to the latest North American edition of Sustainable Business Magazine. Sustainable Business Magazine aims to spread awareness of the values of sustainability, as well as the brilliant ways in which organizations continue to meet challenges and champion corporate social responsibility. For our latest edition we spoke to Naveen Gupta, CEO of ISD Bahamas, about embracing challenges, training employees, and a focus on community projects. Courtenay Mark, Assistant General Manager for Engineering at the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC), spoke to us about combined-cycle power, regulations for renewables, and smart tech. We once again spoke to Richard Goddard, Renewable Energy Officer at Barbados National Oil Company Limited (BNOCL), who updated us on expanding renewables, involving homeowners in solar PV, and combating climate change. Marcus Steele, Managing Director of Carreras Limited, spoke to us about the responsibility of being the only name in Jamaican tobacco. This edition marks the return of our ‘Solar Leadership’ series in partnership with the Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA). The ‘Solar Leadership’ series celebrates how CanSIA members are producing and delivering clean and reliable renewable energy. Each installment is prefaced by a foreword from CanSIA President and CEO John A. Gorman, and for this installment we spoke to Andrew Moles, Manager of Renewable Energy at PCL Construction, about solar moving west, battery storage, collaboration, and the vital role of DFMA (design for manufacture and assembly). Our ‘Canadian Bioeconomy’ series in partnership with Renewable Industries Canada (RICanada), formerly the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association (CRFA), features detailed profiles of RICanada members, showcasing how their efforts are contributing to a more environmentally and economically sustainable future. Each installment is prefaced by a foreword from RICanada, and this installment features IGPC Ethanol. Jim Grey, CEO of IGPC Ethanol, spoke to us about expanding biofuel production, carbon capture, and delivering value to shareholders and society. Details of upcoming sustainability events can be found on our events calendar.
