British Columbia has demonstrated that the economy and the environment go hand in hand. New predictions say that the green economy in B.C. could be worth 27 billion by 2020. All governments in Canada should be investing in this. If we help a green economy along on its path, we could make ourselves a lot richer in the future as many countries will be looking for these environmentally friendly alternatives.
VANCOUVER - The green economy in British Columbia could be worth more than $27-billion by 2020, according to an independent study released on Wednesday by a Vancouver group.
The Vancouver-based GLOBE Foundation report assesses the economic and employment impacts associated with the transformation of the provincial economy toward lower-carbon energy generation and usage, as well as business practices that reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, according to a news release.
