Bryan Buggey

Director, Vancouver Economic Commission

Through Vancouver’s globally acclaimed Greenest City Action Plan – Bryan and his economic “Green Team” have developed and are delivering a variety of programs that are supporting the growth of the local “Green Economy”. This includes innovative programs such as the “Green & Digital Demonstration Program” that have helped entrepreneurs accelerate the commercialization of their cleantech innovations by leveraging city-owned assets to test and demonstrate solutions as well as the “Thriving Vancouver” program which is aimed at assisting businesses in lowering their environmental footprint. As a result, an increasing number of businesses are engaged in greening their operations and tech entrepreneurs are lowering the cost of their commercialization.
