Green Economy KingstonWith the intention of helping Kingston businesses and organizations become more environmentally conscious, Sustainable Kingston will be launching a new initiative on Thursday afternoon.

The program, Green Economy Kingston, will provide support, resources and networks for businesses and organizations interested in reducing their greenhouse gas emissions. Kingston will be the eighth community across Ontario to launch the program.

The event will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Grandview Room at the Delta Waterfront Hotel. Approximately 100 people are registered so far to attend the networking event.

Ruth Noordegraaf, the part-time executive director of Sustainable Kingston, said that with more talk at the federal government level around the implications of climate change and new policies and regulations that will be introduced soon, it’s a good time to help local businesses go green.
