Nearly twenty Canadian companies signed on today to join the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC), which brings together governments, businesses, and civil society groups to identify and address the key challenges to successfully using carbon pricing as a way to combat climate change.
Local governments like California, Quebec and Ontario are managing climate risks – they see the impact of climate change, and the cost of doing nothing, and they recognize the value of putting a price on carbon price. They are showing that climate action equals greater growth, productivity and prosperity.
Vancouver is thriving. Across the coastal Canadian city, jobs are being created, fueled by a cleaner, greener economy. Low-carbon development projects are underway, and there is a shift toward neighborhood energy strategies that cut greenhouse gas emissions and make the energy supply more resilient to storms and overloads.
