You evaluate challenges and solve or set standards to address the environmental issues facing our world today by applying your knowledge and understanding of these opportunities.
Implementing plans, projects and programs are all recurring activities that produce measurable results, using such tools as the recently adopted Environmental Master Plan and the Town’s renewable energy goals. We will rely on your diligence in environmental assessment, monitoring and auditing to evaluate how the Town’s activities impact our national park community. You act as our internal sustainability consultant to educate colleagues on emerging trends, programs and issues in sustainability. You liaise externally with all levels of government and our commercial sector to share and represent the Town of Banff’s interest on matters related to environmental management.
You are “a natural” at engaging individuals’ respect and appreciation for our environment that translates into delivery of attainable and sustainable environmental practices.
