Taking action on climate change has become a priority across Canada, including towns and cities here in New Brunswick. Leading organizations are responding by reducing their environmental impacts, building sustainability into their operations, and forming partnerships to have greater impact than they could alone. To accelerate the low-carbon transition, businesses of all sectors and sizes need to be part of the solution. 


In early 2019, stemming from the work of its Just Transition Caucus, the NBEN applied to bring the Green Economy Canada (GEC) hub model to New Brunswick. For the past two years, the NBEN has worked closely with GEC to lead this exciting new project to launch and continues to support it as a member of the Advisory Committee. Green Economy New Brunswick (GENB) is an example of the NBEN delivering on its mission of improving communication and co-operation among environmental groups and between these groups, government and other sectors, including the business community.


Launching in spring 2021, Green Economy New Brunswick is a provincial Hub that brings together, supports, and celebrates local businesses in setting and achieving robust sustainability goals. The Hub provides a variety of tools and resources, peer learning events, 1:1 support, and public recognition to help businesses succeed in taking action on climate change while saving money, engaging their employees, and building their profile as Green Economy Leaders. 


Green Economy New Brunswick is part of an innovative, credible and award-winning national network led by Green Economy Canada. Through this network, over 300 businesses of all sectors and sizes have collectively reduced more than 200,000 tonnes of GHGs - the equivalent of removing 42,000 cars off the road annually.
