Board of Directors

Net Zero Atlantic is governed by a Board of Directors that reflects the people, places and expertise that exist across Atlantic Canada. Our Board is strengthened by diversity of people, perspectives and experience that exists in its membership. When shaping our Board, we seek representation:

  • from equity-deserving groups, in alignment with the principles of the ISED 50:30 Challenge, of which Net Zero Atlantic is a member agency.
  • according to sector, with directors from academia, the private sector, provincial governments.
  • geographically, with a cross-section of directors from each of the four Atlantic provinces.
