The Board and senior management team of Green Power Labs Inc. are pleased to announce that John Harker will be taking up the role of Director at Green Power Labs with immediate effect. “John’s illustrious career in diplomatic, academic and business circles will be of significant value to our company as we continue to expand our interest in global markets” said Alexandre Pavlovski, Chair of the Board and CEO of Green Power Labs. “While many Nova Scotians are familiar with John’s strong business community leadership in the province as President of Cape Breton University and his creation of a Centre on Sustainability in Energy and the Environment, his global record in capacity building and social responsibility speak very clearly to his engagement with many diverse social issues. John acted as Executive Director of the Professional Association of Foreign Service Officers, representing Canada’s diplomats and trade commissioners before taking on a series of international roles. He was closely involved in several pivotal historical developments including the transition from Rhodesia to Zimbabwe in the 1980s and South Africa’s emergence out of apartheid into democracy in the 1990’s. Most recently, John has been acting as the Chairman of the Advisory Panel of the Development Corridors Partnership coordinated through UNEP; the Panel brings advice to bear on the construction of development corridors in Africa and Asia to ensure that sustainable development goals are built in and environments protected. “Increased growth in low-carbon clean energy demand is certainly being recognized as a major social and environmental challenge for the world” Pavlovski concluded; “John will bring this unique perspective to our team.”
