Positioning Alberta to Compete and Succeed in a Net-Zero Future

June 6, 2024 — 10:30–11:45 a.m.

What does Alberta need to do to compete and succeed in a net-zero future? This session will feature Canada’s Net-Zero Advisory Body (NZAB) co-chair Dan Wicklum, who will explore the threats, opportunities, and solutions to climate change and how NZAB’s work can help focus engineers and geoscientists on the most likely pathways to net zero. Attendees will gain insight into Alberta’s emissions relative to other provinces and by sector, policy provisions for emission reduction and sectoral competitiveness, and pathways the NZAB recommends for Canada to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, with 2030 marking a critical step on this journey.

About the Net-Zero Advisory Body (NZAB): The NZAB is a group of independent experts from across Canada. Originally launched in February 2021 and formalized under the Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act in June 2021, the NZAB’s legislated mandate is to provide independent advice to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change with respect to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
