fred-granekIt is with sorrow that we share the sad news of Fred Granek’s passing on January 2, 2014 .  Fred was a long time (1993), dedicated supporter and contributor to the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable and the Great Lakes Regional Pollution Prevention Roundtable.  Fred joined the Canadian Center for Pollution Prevention as President in September 2013.  Prior to Joining C2P2, Fred was the Vice President for Sustainability at the Bloom Centre for Sustainability (2000-2013) and the Manager of the Pollution Prevention Office at the Ontario Ministry of Environment (1993-2000).

Fred was passionate about the environment.  He dedicated his professional life to helping businesses improve their environmental impacts and dedicated his personal life to his family, friends and spending time experiencing nature.  Fred will be missed by all of us who were fortunate enough to be touched by his spirit and zest for life.
