Mississauga, Canada—Susan McGeachie, global director of Strategy and Policy, Climate Change at Hatch, has been named one of twenty-six Canadian Climate Champions by the Canada Climate Law Initiative and the British High Commission ahead of the COP26 Climate Change Conference later this year.

The twenty-six Canadian Climate Change Champions have been identified as individuals from various industries across the country who are committed to the collective goal of moving towards net-zero emissions and driving forward a clean energy future in the spirit of positive change. Susan joins a roster of recognized individuals including David Suzuki, celebrated environmental activist and co-founder of the David Suzuki Foundation, and Canadian Minister of Infrastructure and Communities and former Environment and Climate Change Minister, The Honorable Catherine McKenna.

The selection process included consultations between the Canada Climate Law Initiative and a panel of industry experts, fifteen affiliated research scholars, and a ten-person advisory committee. Concurrently, the British High Commission consulted their UK consuls in Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal, Toronto, and Ottawa. The criteria included a demonstrated commitment towards moving to net-zero carbon emissions, as well as contributions to business, community, public policy, and climate governance knowledge.

“Our climate change team has the privilege of working alongside some of the world’s most innovative companies in striving to address the interconnected challenges of reducing our global carbon footprint, designing more resilient infrastructure, and accelerating socio-economic inclusion,” stated Susan.

Hatch’s corporate vision is to create a better world through positive change. We see no greater opportunity to do so than through the pursuit of a future shaped by a sustainable global society—a global, collaborative effort led in part by Susan. Our Statement on Climate Change underlines our aspirations to solving the challenges facing our world today, and we have the opportunity to play an important role in finding and implementing those solutions.
