Clean technology (clean tech) is any product, process, or service that reduces environmental impacts. The City of Prince George, in partnership with Community Futures Fraser-Fort George, is working with local businesses to identify and enhance existing clean technology products and services. The clean tech project's goal is to foster innovation in Prince George through collaborations and maintaining awareness of available grants and programs that help companies adapt to clean technology demands.
The City of Prince George's Economic Development Division will help identity and explain clean technology opportunities in the region by building business capacity and development through coaching, workshops, marketing tools, and tradeshows.
