Energy Council of Canada: Sharing British Columbia’s Low Carbon Advantage with the World
May 29, 2019 – 7 to 9 AM | Vancouver, BC
Hear how B.C. natural resources, energy products, manufactured goods, and technology exports contain up to five times lower carbon content than competing jurisdictions’ products. Expanding the reach and scale of these low carbon inputs for increasingly in-demand items such as EV vehicles can make an outsized impact on reducing carbon content and emissions around the world.
Delegates from the Clean Energy Ministerial and Mission Innovation Conference, along with Canadian leaders from business, academia, all levels of government and Indigenous communities, will benefit from this discussion. It will paint a vivid picture of the world-leading action that British Columbia is taking locally, to lead in the fight against climate change internationally. Registration
