Government of Canada

The Government of Canada is a proud partner of this year’s North American Carbon World conference and applauds the Climate Action Reserve’s efforts to bring together people from across the globe who are working tirelessly to address the challenges of climate change. In Canada we have a clean growth and climate action plan that we believe will make real progress at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and achieving the commitments of the Paris Agreement. We are putting a price on carbon pollution not to raise money, but to shift the energy choices we make and reward a shift to cleaner economic growth. We are investing in green infrastructure, urban transit and clean tech. Canada has also partnered with the UK to create the Powering Past Coal Alliance to accelerate the transition off coal and onto cleaner energy. Over 70 countries, cities, regions and organizations, including Los Angeles, have joined this Alliance. We look forward to sharing our climate success stories with all of you!
