Funding available for conscious organizations

Cowichan Energy Alternatives hosts an information meeting Thursday in Courtenay.

If your organization is making sustainable business decisions to measure or reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHGs), you might be eligible for funding through the Community Carbon Marketplace (CCM).

Cowichan Energy Alternatives is hosting a free information meeting this Thursday in Courtenay for businesses, co-ops and non-profits to learn about the CCM.

It’s an online resource where local governments, businesses and individuals can go to reduce their carbon footprint by investing in the development of a sustainable local economy.

For local organizations, it’s a potential new revenue stream for greening your business. For local governments, it’s a way to meet Climate Charter commitments while growing your a low-carbon economy.

The information meeting Thursday runs from 1 to 2 p.m. upstairs at Serious Coffee at 2760 Cliffe Ave. For more information, contact rick@cowicha.
