  • We already have some of the world’s toughest emissions standards and practices in numerous areas of manufacturing, processing and resource extraction, delivering very high rates of productivity per unit of greenhouse gas emissions.
  • This points to the need for a “common sense climate policy” that exploits Canada’s comparative advantage in embedded emissions to compete internationally while reducing global emissions.
