Hosted by Divert NS, the annual awards are held to recognize environmental leaders in Nova Scotia. The organization is currently marking 20 years of recycling in Nova Scotia and recently changed names, previously known as the Resource Recovery Fund Board (RRFB Nova Scotia).

The 2016 Mobius Awards include seven prestigious titles for Nova Scotians who demonstrate recycling and waste diversion success. To commemorate the province’s legacy of 20 years recycling, a new Hall of Fame category has been included to recognize a longstanding environmental leader.

“It is an incredible honour to have Dr. Suzuki join us,” says Divert NS CEO Jeff MacCallum. “We couldn’t envision a better guest to help us celebrate Nova Scotia’s recycling champions and mark two decades of dedication to our environment.”

Dr. David Suzuki, co-founder of the David Suzuki Foundation, is an award-winning scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster. He is renowned for his radio and television programs, such as CBC’s The Nature of Things, that explain the complexities of the natural sciences in a compelling, easily understood way. A legendary Canadian environmental icon, Dr. Suzuki will be speaking at the Mobius Awards about Business and Environmental Sustainability.

The 2016 Mobius Awards of Environmental Excellence will take place:

November 9, 2016
Registration at 5:30 p.m., event from 6:00 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Halifax Marriott Harbourfront
1919 Upper Water Street Halifax, Nova Scotia
