UBC Forestry wishes to congratulate Professor Jack Saddler on leading the BC-SMART program and receiving the 2023 CFA Collaboration and Partnership Award.
Professor Saddler is a dedicated Professor in the Department of Wood Science at UBC Forestry and the the Program Lead for The British Columbia Sustainable Marine, Aviation, Rail and Trucking (BC-SMART) Low-Carbon Fuels Consortium. Under his leadership, the BC SMART program has fostered key connections with different stakeholder groups along the full supply chain and facilitated meaningful conversations around made-in-Canada solutions. The program has been diligently assessing global technology development and deployment as well as policies that encourage the production and use of low-carbon fuels, such as biodiesel, renewable diesel and Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
“BC-SMART wants to thank CFA for the 2023 Collaboration and Partnership Award and will continue to provide forum that brings together Canada’s main components of its economy, as the country strives to meet its decarbonisation targets,” says Professor Saddler.
About the CFA Collaboration and Partnership Award
Collaboration is a key pillar of CFA’s Driving to 2050 vision, so the award is designed to recognize groups with whom BC-SMART has shared objectives. The CFA Collaboration and Partnership award recognizes an organization or association that demonstrated solid engagement and cooperation with CFA and members, leading to positive outcomes for shared objectives.
