Brad Clute is Mountain Equipment Co-op’s Regional Sustainability and Community Coordinator for Western Canada. Under Brad’s leadership MEC sustainability programs have won numerous awards including a provincial Emerald Award and a Calgary Award both for corporate environmental achievement, as well as a Better Business Bureau Business Ethics Award. Their sustainability programs are an example of how businesses can both prosper and have a positive impact on the community and the planet.
Brad is also governance director of the Alberta Council for Environmental Education and past president of the Calgary Area Outdoor Council. He regularly serves on advisory committees for both government and the non-profit sector, and has recently completed a term on the steering committee for Calgary’s Economic Development Network.
Brad believes that business, when done ethically, can be a powerful tool for positive change in the community, and he’s dedicated to proving it. He also believes that if you rarely clean out or unload your car, you’ll be prepared for anything. His loving and patient wife disagrees.
