Gregor Robertson, Executive Vice President of Strategy and Partnerships
Everyone in the building and construction industry must step up if we are going to solve the climate emergency.
Gregor discusses the critical need to make all of our buildings energy efficient to reduce the impact of buildings on climate.
After leading the city of Vancouver as its longest serving Mayor, Gregor now focuses his work on positive solutions to the climate crisis, both with the Nexii leadership team and as Global Ambassador for the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy. His vision for a greener, more inclusive Vancouver has led to record-setting years for new housing, job growth and the lowest carbon emissions per person for any major city in North America. The city now consistently ranks among the top five green and livable cities in the world.
Before serving as mayor, Gregor served in the BC Parliament, he co-founded and led Happy Planet Foods, and was an organic farmer.
