The topic of whether a clean environment and a strong economy can go hand in hand has garnered much media attention. At the same time, it is important that government policies be evidence-based. The next Environment and Climate Change Canada Speaker Series event will be held on July 24th, 2019. Dr. Antoine Dechezleprêtre will present his research findings on the impact of environmental policies on both economic and environmental outcomes. His research includes innovation policies and clean tech as well as examining the impact of the EU’s Emissions Trading System on competitiveness, the effect of energy prices on employment, as well as the impact of carbon taxes on the manufacturing sector. Antoine will also share his thoughts on the Canadian context.
