Pan-Canadian Conference on Securing a Net-Zero Economy

On October 25, 1pm-5pm ET, the Canadian Institute for Climate Choices and the Net-Zero Advisory Body, will host a pan-Canadian conference on “the risks and opportunities ahead” as Canada works towards securing a net-zero economy.

The goal of the conference is “to inform the creation of Canada’s first 2030 emissions reduction plan as mandated by the Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act.”

For members who may not be aware, the Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act established a net-zero advisory body to provide government expert advice on the most effective ways to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

The conference is divided into five sessions and will feature nearly twenty speakers, representing a range of industry, political, and public policy expertise.

The first session will focus on the mission and priorities of Canada’s Net-Zero Advisory Body.

The second will discuss the risks and opportunities that lay ahead in the global transition to a low-carbon economy.

The third session will highlight the need for a whole of government approach to achieving net-zero and explore lessons from the UK.

The fourth will explore the business of net-zero.

The last session will discuss the latest updates in the lead-up to the major UN Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, scheduled to be held October 31 – November 12, 2021 in Glasgow, Scotland. 

Members can register here to attend the conference.
