Yasmin Abraham

President and Co-Founder, Kambo Energy Group

Yasmin is President and Co-founder of Kambo Energy Group, a social enterprise that reduces energy poverty and improves housing in communities that have been traditionally underprioritized across the Pacific Northwest. For 15 years Kambo has supported communities through its three flagship programs, each designed to address a unique gap in the market: Empower Me, an education and awareness program designed to support environmental justice communities; the Home Upgrades Program, a first-of-its-kind deep energy retrofit program to reduce energy poverty, and Community Power which works with Tribal and First Nations to take action on housing.

Yasmin is a leading expert in equity-based energy and climate programming, working with governments and utilities across North America to design and deliver inclusive solutions. Yasmin holds an MBA from the Sauder School of Business, a certificate of Diversity and Inclusion from Cornell University, is a member of the Efficiency Canada Governing Council, a founding member of the National Affordability Action Council, a member of the Faculty Advisory Board for the Sauder School of Business at UBC, and a member of the Zero Emissions Building Task Force at the City of Burnaby.

Yasmin has assembled an employee roster representative of the communities they serve – 83% identify as a visible minority, immigrant and/or multilingual, and 59% of employees are female.
