Don’t know Jonathan? Here is a quick recap:

Jonathan is an Environmental Markets practitioner, focusing upon the intersection of environmental attributes, bio-economy and energy transition issues across Canada and internationally.   He leads the firm’s Alternative Fuels national initiative, promoting the growth of lower-carbon liquid, gaseous and solid fuels, including as they develop and are regulated under provincial and national clean fuel programs, as well as related climate change related considerations.  

He was counsel to Canada’s first zero emissions municipal solid waste-to-energy project more than a decade ago and has been active in domestic and international greenhouse gas and carbon credit regimes, including the United Nation’s Clean Development Mechanism. Jonathan also spearheads BLG’s “Green Economy” client program, promoting energy transition, resource recovery and related environmental quality practices across a range of industrial and infrastructure sectors.
