Beth Hardy

Vice President, Strategy and Stakeholder Relations, International CCS Knowledge Centre

As Vice-President, Strategy & Stakeholder Relations, Beth leads the Knowledge Centre’s considerations of policies and regulations that foster CCS; and focuses on helping to link CCS knowledge with other countries to reduce locked-in investments and collaboratively support the goals of the Paris Agreement.

Her understanding of complex climate change matters, capacity building requirements, and international financing concerns act as a solid basis for assisting both national and international implementation strategies for technologies that support environmental targets.

Prior to joining the Knowledge Centre Beth worked briefly as legal counsel for the provincial Crown utility. She pairs this industrial perspective with regulatory knowledge as Acting Director of Climate Change with the Government of Saskatchewan. These positions are reflective of Beth’s time with the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy where she focused on analysing provincial/territorial climate action plans and making recommendations for low cost and sustainable pathways.

Beth’s legal education, teaching and practice have explored balancing energy, the environment and social implications.
