Recipient: Anna Harman

Region: International

Anna Harman E.I.T., leads carbon road mapping studies for building portfolios with WSP’s Climate Change Team. At the age of 25, Anna is already a Canadian leader in this field. She was a key contributor to the development of plans to avoid over 18 million tons of CO2 emissions in over 1,000 buildings across Canada. As emissions from energy use is only one contributor to climate change, her work also focuses on benchmarking and reducing water and waste. She has benchmarked energy, carbon, and water for over 200 buildings internationally and has identified possible reduction measures as a first step towards sustainable operations and carbon neutrality. Anna has played a critical role in developing multiple holistic sustainability strategies. Anna is developing programs to assist young people of all backgrounds in their exploration of engineering and climate change reduction. She co-founded and chairs a volunteer committee fostering a sustainable workplace and surrounding community.
