In order to achieve its objective to lower greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, Canada needs to drastically accelerate the decarbonization of its industries. The role of the regulator in defining a clear objective, as well as coalitions of the willing to achieve that objective, will be absolutely necessary to reach a sustainable Canadian economy.
This live panel and Q&A will bring together experts from Canada’s industries and not-for-profit groups to explore Canada’s progress in achieving net-zero in its industries; the coalitions that will be necessary to make that happen; technology development and adoption; and the role of government.
Canada’s Future Energy Pathways Series
Shell Canada and TheFutureEconomy.ca have partnered to present “Canada’s Future Energy Pathways,” a three-part thought leadership series that will profile leaders from Canada’s energy and sustainability ecosystems.
This series is comprised of three panel discussions and three featured interviews on Canada’s transition to a low carbon economy. The topics covered include how to constructively discuss Canada’s energy future, Indigenous participation in Canada’s energy transition, and decarbonising Canada’s industries. This series features voices from across various stakeholder groups, including government officials, Indigenous leaders, academics, youth and industry to encourage a thought-provoking and action-oriented national conversation on the future of energy in Canada.
