Why It Matters

Innovation & Sustainability

The future success of our economy is dependent on our ability to sell our resources for a fair price today. By getting the most out of what we have, we’ll be able to build a path towards an economy less dependent on carbon and harness renewable and transitional sources of energy.

Canada can play a leading role in the responsible production of natural resources and renewable energy such as hydropower, wind and solar. We should seize the opportunity to replace high-emission fuel sources, such as coal, with lower-carbon natural gas in developing economies like China and India. If we are successful, Canada will have a significant impact on reducing Greenhouse Gas emissions globally. But again, if we are unable or unwilling to move forward in a clear direction, we jeopardize the opportunity to grow our economy, invest in infrastructure and fight climate change all at the same.
