How to tackle climate change while rebuilding our economy?

How to tackle climate change while rebuilding our economy?

The Liberal Government has moved the climate agenda forward by leveraging Canada’s cleantech sector – what are the key policies the Liberals are currently envisioning to propel the sector forward? What’s missing or needs work? What can the sector do to help move things forward? Canada Cleantech Alliance hosted a webinar on October 18, 2021 to discuss these questions. Dale Beugin, Research and Analysis Vice President, Canadian Institute for Climate Choices, Heather Campbell, Executive Director, Clean Technology, Alberta Innovates, Prof. Stewart Elgie, Chair, Smart Prosperity Institute and Anne Toner Fung, CEO, Innovation Guelph highlighted the positive developments over the last years, while pointing out that there’s still a lot of work to be done in order to reach our climate targets.
