Gain Practical Insights from National and International Experts and Leaders

Join us to hear experts from across Canada and internationally share their insights on how to proactively manage the transition to a low carbon growth path. You will learn about Canada’s main policy priorities and the options that are being explored to reduce carbon emissions while also de-linking them from economic growth.

You will have an opportunity to learn from, and network with, industry experts, government leaders and strategic thinkers with expertise on carbon management and reduction as they relate to planning, policy and practice. By attending this inaugural event, you will gain a variety of insights on what Canada’s low carbon growth path might look like and have the opportunity to consider with experts, the implications for industry, all levels of government and the Canadian public at large.

Meet, work and explore the issues with your peers and colleagues from both the public and private sectors at this timely and important event. You will learn about the most recent developments in policies, emissions targets, technology and strategies that can be advanced as we navigate this new future. You will also be among the first to hear the results of the Conference Board’s study on how to de-carbonize Canada’s economy over the next 35 years.

Topics for discussion at the conference will include:

  • Federal and provincial carbon pricing approaches
