ONEIA golfers brave record heat for golf day 2016
A sold-out crowd of environment and cleantech professionals braved the hottest day of the summer to enjoy an afternoon of golf and networking on July 13.
As the temperature topped 34 degrees Celsius, the day began with an information briefing from the Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) about its cap-and-trade plans. Moderated by Janet Bobechko of Norton Rose Fulbright LLP, the session shared both the basics of the system and the province;s plans for the coming years (for more info, please consult ONEIA’s twitter account at @ONEIANetwork)
Following a BBQ lunch, participants spent the afternoon golfing under sunny skies in a best ball format. For pictures of the event, please visit https://flic.kr/s/aHskzX6ufm
Thanks to everyone who came out and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
