“Industry leaders in Canada need to understand there is a short time frame, starting now, to get in front of opportunities, or they risk falling behind the pace of change. If the federal and provincial governments are committing Canada to participate in international emission reduction targets, industry will bear the brunt of the responsibility to meet them. GLOBE capital is so important because it allows us to have this conversation.”
