**Note: If the NOMINEE has played a significant role in leading any of these changes, they should also respond to further questions later on this form about sustainable procurement to be considered for the HP Canada special award for the Clean50 honouree who has most advanced sustainable procurement in Canada over the past ~2 / 2+ years
Note: If the NOMINEE has played a significant role in leading any of these changes, and wishes to ALSO be considered for a special award, they may provide minimal details here and should also respond to further questions later on this form about sustainable procurement to be considered for the Delta Management / HP Canada special award for the Clean50 honouree who has most advanced sustainable procurement in Canada in the past 2 years
Note: If the NOMINEE has played a significant role in leading any of these changes, please make note. Buildings nominees will be asked about GRESB in a later question and need not respond here other than to say “we report under GRESB”.
Note: Responses to this question will not be shared outside of Delta Management’s team
While the Clean50 is not itself an advocacy organization, specific and clearly identified individual members of The Clean50 from time to time take a public position regarding sustainability and / or climate issues of public interest. For example in April 2019, 100 members of the Clean50 came together to purchase an advertisement in the Globe and Mail to present an open letter to Canadians, focused on the benefits of a new low carbon economy, and asking our fellow Canadians to insist that any politician they supported first have a clear plan to tackle climate change and climate action. In 2020, 235 members of the Clean50 (over 200 of whom also had the support of their organizations, which also “signed on” to the ask) signed a public letter asking for a post COVID 19 “CleanReset” stimulus plan (see the Clean50 website for both).
In several earlier cases, members came together to express their support for various actions by governments. In each and every instance, governments responded favourably and acted as we had asked.
While the Clean50 is not the sole organization who did so in either case, we do know that the broad coalition of our Alumni was noted in both cases, and we were certainly the largest diverse organization of stakeholder to ask for the actions we did – something we believe gave policy makers permission / cover to do what they wanted to do.
*** Is the nominee able to take such a stand, should they wish to support any such statements, and do so in a public fashion? (We fully appreciate that Government employees are often denied any such ability). We would appreciate the Nominee’s thoughts regarding the Clean50 or its members taking on any kind of advocacy role. Note: Clean50 Alumni are under no obligation to endorse any public advocacy position and statements are always clear to delineate that the positions expressed are expressed only by those signing on to any given statement.
