Mr. Lee has a B.Sc. in chemical engineering from the University of Alberta, and a M.A.Sc. in environmental engineering from the University of British Columbia. He has 10 years of experience with climate change markets in BC, Alberta, Ontario, and California. He is a CSA certified GHG verifier. He has been a member of Engineers and Geoscientists BC and APEGA since 1982. He enjoys public speaking and providing training.
Mr. Lee is a member of the CSA Technical Committee (TC 207) on Climate Change which is also a harmonized mirror committee that represents Canada’s interest in the development of international standards through the ISO Technical Committee 207/Subcommittee 7 on GHG Management and Related Activities. This harmonized committee represents Canada’s interest in the development of international standards through the ISO (TC 207/Subcommittee 7: Greenhouse gas management and related activities). The committee also develops new standards and adopts existing international standards at the Canadian national level. Particularly, he is a working group expert on the following standards under development: ISO 14064 – related to climate change mitigation; ISO 14091 – related to climate change vulnerability assessment and ISO 14097 – related to climate finance.
