Michael Rousseau emphasizes the importance of addressing climate change despite the challenges the pandemic has had on the airline sector. The comments were made in Air Canada’s announcement of its commitment to reduce emissions by 20 per cent over the next decade with the ultimate goal of net zero by 2050.

“Despite the severe impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain deeply committed to long-term sustainability. Climate change is critical, and we believe we can and must do more to address this for the future of our environment.”
