Mark Jaccard to advise B.C. Government

November 29, 2007

SFU climate change expert Mark Jaccard (above) has been named as a special advisor to B.C. premier Gordon Campbell’s new 22-member "climate action team" mandated to help the province achieve a one-third cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. The climate action team is tasked with meeting the government goals set out in the recently introduced Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets Act, which the premier has touted as the most aggressive legislation of its kind in North America. Jaccard is a professor in SFU’s School of Resource and Environmental Management where he directs the Energy and Materials Research Group.
