TransAlta, The University of Calgary and the Institute for Sustainable Energy, Environment and Economy (ISEEE) have partnered to create this new Professorship within ISEEE, the Faculty of Environmental Design and the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary.

  • Engage in innovative research, education and outreach to advance environmental management and sustainability in energy and environment, at the regional, national and international levels.
  • Provide advice and counsel to TransAlta on policy and regulatory issues and environmental strategies, and evaluation of proposed energy projects.
  • Contribute to TransAlta’s role as a recognized leader in energy and environment sustainability.
  • Advise on investments in the U of C.
