The Canadian Chamber of Commerce released a bulletin “The Shortest Decade: Addressing the Coming Climate Crunch” which outlines the Chambers position that action on talking the climate crunch is dependent on leadership from government, civil society and Canadian businesses.
Among the policies the Chamber advocates for:
- a carbon pricing mechanism that is explicit in its price signal, revenue-neutral, and accompanied by reductions in other costs to businesses;
- federal government to further incentivize the uptake of energy efficiency solutions and green technologies that will reduce emissions and carry the added benefits of reducing overall costs to firms and consumers;
- “grid decarbonisation in Canada and initiatives to develop public policy to support circular business models
