Climate Change and Clean Growth
Developing and promoting effective policies that reduce pollution and the environmental footprint of Canadian businesses, communities and citizens.
Positioning Canada as a location of choice for energy companies that partner with Indigenous communities and invest in low-carbon solutions that foster superior economic and environmental performance.
Ensuring all regions benefit from Canada’s resource wealth and Canadians get full value for their resources, including agriculture, minerals, forestry and fisheries
Business Council of Canada welcomes the federal government’s plan for “A healthy environment and a healthy economy.”
The Business Council stands ready to work with all levels of government to ensure Canadian companies have clear rules, a predictable policy framework and a supportive investment environment that will allow them to continue to be major contributors to Canada’s economic progress and environmental sustainability.
