The tech sector and the environment

Whether we accept it or not, the environment has an impact on our personal health and wellbeing.

We should be planning what’s best for the environment in a preventative manner. If we don’t have an environmentally safe place to live, there’s no point in having an economy.

We need more incentives for green technology companies to set up shop in Vancouver.
