Canada has the resources and the know-how to build one of the world’s cleanest and greenest economies. That’s one of the messages four business leaders delivered at a Canadian Club Toronto event on January 17th.

The discussion, “Seizing Canada’s Clean Growth Opportunity,” focused on the steps we need to take now to secure a low-carbon energy future.

Presented in partnership with the Business Council of Canada, the event featured key decision-makers from Canada’s mining, agriculture, financial services and energy sectors:

  • Don Lindsay, President and CEO of Teck Resources;
  • Karn Manhas, Founder and CEO of Terramera;
  • Dave McKay, President and CEO of RBC; and
  • Susannah Pierce, President and Country Chair of Shell Canada.

The conversation was moderated by Nadia Theodore, Senior VP of Maple Leaf Foods.

In Don Lindsay’s words, “We have all of the competitive pieces to address climate change, to stimulate economic growth and to build a nation where our kids can thrive.”
