Melissa Felder has led an environmental consulting practice since 2001 and is currently environmental advisor for MaRS Discovery District. She has worked on a variety of projects across Canada for private and public sector clients, in areas ranging from energy and transportation to water and waste reduction.
Melissa was project lead for development of Canada's first film-based environmental baseline on behalf of regional partners in 2009 and the subsequent conceptualization of the Green Screen carbon reporting and recognition framework for the Toronto region. Melissa also led development of the associated Green Screen impact calculator. Her other film-related activity includes quantifying the environmental benefits of CBC’s national LED replacement strategy and development of a historical carbon footprint of NBC's show Warehouse 13, which was an innovative and numbers-based report to track the show over four seasons compared to a business as usual baseline. Melissa has a Masters in Chemical and Biological Engineering (Hon.) from UBC.
