Our Zero Carbon Future: Leaving No One Behind

Part 2 of a 3-part series organized by Corporate Knights in partnership with the German and French Embassies in Canada.

The transition to clean energy as the primary source of energy in Canada will impact both consumers and suppliers. On the supply side, there are different impacts for different players that must be understood and planned for if a just transition is to be achieved. This session will explore:

-The policies/ policy ideas and actions to support displaced workers from the traditional energy sector, as well as engage people currently excluded from the labour market in emerging clean energy workforce opportunities

-Energy producers and suppliers, considering the policies and actions needed to support the growth of new and emerging producers/suppliers of clean energy

-Disruptors with the potential to develop and drive the adoption of new technologies to enable and force change among the small, medium and large energy producers and suppliers (including oil and gas)
