This seminar will help provide information on the drivers, demands, challenges, and responsibilities associated with a changing climate.

Seminar Objectives

  • To change the perspective of most engineers and geoscientists about the tremendous opportunities before them arising from a changing climate.
  • To help engineers and geoscientists begin to think from a changing climate perspective.
  • To guide engineers and geoscientists in taking the next steps.

Prerequisites

Registrants will benefit from reading:

  • Engineers and Geoscientis BC Position Papers (2) on Climate Change,
  • Engineers and Geoscientis BC Sustainability Guideline, and
  • Anything else, such as visiting the Engineers and Geoscientis BC Climate Change Information Portal.

Seminar Outline

  • Introduction and overview of climate change and its implications for engineers and geoscientists.
  • The market opportunities for engineers and geoscientists in climate change mitigation (covering drivers, challengers, and responsibilities).
  • The market opportunities for engineers and geoscientists in climate change adaptation (covering drivers, including regulatory, challengers, and responsibilities).
  • How to identify climate action risks and opportunities.

Speaker

Mr. Nelson Lee, MASc, P.Eng., GHG-V

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.
