Governments can pull the market in a number of different ways. They can implement environmental policies that place market value on clean innovation solutions. They can use their power as large-scale buyers to boost demand for cleaner goods and services. And they can also exercise important influence over Canadian infrastructure decisions that support clean innovation. The federal government has a stated goal of of reducing carbon emissions from government operations by 40% by 2030. The implications raised for public policy design have captured our attention and in response, Clean Energy Canada and Smart Prosperity Institute are convening a select group of thought leaders for a one-day workshop, in Toronto. The purpose of this invitation-only roundtable is to develop a set of recommendations to be presented to the Centre for Greening Government, housed within the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat. In order to meet this objective, Clean Energy Canada and Smart Prosperity Institute are assembling experts, from different sectors, to work through key questions essential to the development of the policy.
Stay tuned for more work on this issue by Smart Prosperity Institute!
