Métis Nation of Alberta
Andres is a chemical engineering graduate with a background in education, environmental risk management, and energy and sustainability. Andres joined the Métis Nation of Alberta in early 2017 and led the MNA’s Climate Change Action Plan. Currently, his team is exploring opportunities in energy efficiency and installing a solar project at the MNA facilities. While Andres sees significant challenges in the fight against climate change, he also believes there is room for communities and individuals to reap substantial benefits such as reduced energy costs, new jobs and businesses, and environmental and health benefits. His interest in the 20/20 Catalysts Program comes from wanting to learn about what other communities have accomplished and understand how these could help the MNA’s Climate Change Action Plan.
