About

After completing his undergraduate degree in Biology, followed by stints of extended travel to South Korea and Australia, Eric Westrum migrated north from the U.S. to pursue an MSc at the University of Calgary in Sustainable Energy Development. Calgary’s proximity to world-class natural parks and outdoor spaces proved more than enough to keep him from leaving. Currently he is a Senior Sustainability Advisor at Suncor, and helps coordinate and steward a number of evolving sustainability disclosures and reporting frameworks. This work contributes to broader strategic external engagement and advocacy on environmental, social and governance topics.

In addition to his board position with Alberta Ecotrust, Eric tries to pursue impactful and solutions-oriented volunteering opportunities. Biking and other outdoor pursuits on the weekends or during free-time also helps him to re-focus and balance priorities.
