Certificate Awarded by CTCN at COP24 in Poland
This week in Poland where Myriam LeBlanc and Frédéric Gagnon-Lebrun are attending COP24, Econoler was awarded a certificate of appreciation from the Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN) for working with the latter in clean technology transfer initiatives in emerging and developing countries. The CTCN was founded in 2013 and acts as the operational arm of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Technology Mechanism. It implements technical assistance and capacity reinforcement projects in which only members of the CTCN network are allowed to participate through a tendering process. This network comprises institutional partners, NGOs, universities and private firms committed to the fight against and adaptation to climate change. In 2015, Econoler was among the very first Canadian enterprises to be accepted into the network.
Since then, we have carried out many technical assistance projects for CTCN, including providing support for the creation and establishment of a Climate Change Competence Centre (4Climate) in Madagascar. Econoler is also supporting the Government of Papua New Guinea (PNG) to execute and promote energy labelling and minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for for air-conditioners.
