It is a 100% owned Indigenous company. Brad has over 20 years of experience with Utilities and Energy Conservation. He is also an activist against Indigenous Mascots and the racism they promote.
Brad has worked with utilities and their clients on the best approaches to reduce their energy usage. In 2013, he developed the Going Green to $ave Green Video Series.
Beyond Green believes energy conservation can and should save you money. If you are going to go green, you should $ave Green. Through the video series, Beyond Green can show you how.
The video series enables teachers to create a culture of sustainability by providing turnkey video lessons to improve the energy efficiency literacy of their students.
Brad received his MBA from the University Of Notre Dame (cum laude) in 2001. Since then he has worked in US Corporate Banking for project finance and utilities, performance contracting, and with Canadian utilities.

Beyond Green hopes to use the video series to provide real-world STEM examples of the best practices in corporate energy efficiency to the 21st-century science classroom.
Brad is active in Indigenous human rights.He believes mascots perpetuate racism against indigenous people. Brad’s efforts have received support from Amnesty International, the Ontario Human Rights Commission, the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations of Saskatchewan, and many others in his fight. He has also written blog posts for the Huffington Post and papers on the inclusion of Scientific Racism in Native Mascots on Academia.edu.
Brad believes that promoting and sponsoring these teams creates a hostile environment for a business’ indigenous customers and employees, and is willing to help corporations improve their relationship with the Indigenous community by ensuring their full compliance with what ought to be reasonably known as unwelcome.
