MacDonald recognized as category leader for Investors and Ecosystem Support
(Toronto, ON) Today, Canada’s Ocean Supercluster CEO Kendra MacDonald was named one of Canada’s top sustainability leaders for the Clean50 Awards. From more than 1,000 nominees across the country, MacDonald has also been named category leader for Investors and Ecosystem Support as a part of this year’s Clean50 Awards.
Canada’s Clean50 Awards are announced annually by Delta Management Group and the Clean50 organization to recognize those 50 individuals or small teams from 16 different categories who have done the most to advance the cause of sustainability and clean capitalism in Canada over the past two years. MacDonald says she is excited to share this recognition with other Canadian leaders who are committed to creating sustainable growth opportunities that also help contribute to the path to net-zero. “While it’s my name on the award and that is a great honour, this is truly representative of how the Ocean Supercluster network collectively is changing the way ocean business is done.”
“The sustainable development of our ocean economy is one of the most important opportunities of our time, and the work of Canada’s Ocean Supercluster and its almost 450 members is a testament to what we can achieve when we work together,” said Kendra MacDonald. “We know the ocean is at the forefront in the fight against climate change and it’s the incredible innovation and Canadian made ocean solutions that are not only tackling some of these global challenges but also creating exciting new companies, jobs, and opportunities from coast-to-coast-to-coast.”
Successfully building a network of 450 cross-sectoral collaborators and investors and leading almost $300 million in investment into more than 50 blue technology projects across Canada over the past two years was among the reasons why MacDonald was awarded the recognition.
“The 2022 Clean16 are truly the leaders of the leaders in sustainability in Canada. The competition for the top spot this year in every instance left us with a record number of great choices – and to be selected from amongst such a strong group of peers is truly a testament to the contribution Kendra MacDonald has made to helping make Canada more sustainable for all Canadians,” said Gavin Pitchford, CEO of Delta Management Group.
The purpose of Clean50 Awards is to identify, recognize and connect sustainability leaders from across Canada. Clean50 believes a solution for climate change will take input from every sector of Canadian life, and that cross-sector collaboration will be critical to achieving any measurable success. The Clean50 Awards Summit was created to accelerate this process.
