Net-Zero Agenda

March 28

In March 2022, Environment and Climate Change Canada released its 2030 Emissions Reductions Plan. Since then, there have been continued policy and regulatory changes to reduce Canada’s carbon footprint – but are we on track to reach our emissions targets? This Executive Summit will examine Canada’s 2030 Emissions Reductions Plan one year after release and will provide private sector perspectives on Canada’s path to net-zero.
