Stephen Mandel

Mayor, City of Edmonton

Dispelling the notion it’s impossible to be green in Alberta,  long time (recently retired) mayor, Stephen led his community, in partnership with (2013 Clean50) Enerkem, as it embraced the most comprehensive waste management system in Canada, built 2 LRT lines while refurbishing the fleet, and created “Fresh” – a leading edge urban agriculture policy. Other initiatives included the redevelopment of a sprawling 300 acre airport complex into a sustainable community that will house 30,000 residents.  Edmonton’s waste management expertise has led to the creation of a consulting arm that has exported that knowledge to cities in China and Europe.
