Who We Are
Founded in New Brunswick in 2021, ClimaTech Innovations was born in the front seat of a pickup truck as we drove through the woods chatting about ideas of how we can be leveraging our local forests to help make a difference in fighting climate change. That conversation lit a spark that we couldn’t tame, and has since grown into what we believe to be a unique solution for climate action that makes so much sense.
We both have grown up,lived in and worked in southern New Brunswick our whole lives, we know this area and we know these woods. We are both, passionate about the outdoors and getting in touch with nature.Climatech is our way to do the right thing for our local forests, our communities and the environment as a whole.
Why we are doing this
ClimaTech Innovations was created around what we love, what we are good at, what today’s world needs. We are skilled, experienced professionals in the fields of forestry, environmental management, continuous improvement, and emerging technologies. We love being outdoors and we are committed to a healthier planet. We are ClimaTech Innovations.
