If you want proof that carbon pricing is both an environmental and economic solution, take a walk through the headquarters of Markham-based Pond Technologies. What you’ll find are containers and tanks bubbling green with algae that efficiently suck up greenhouse-gas emissions for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The company has spent years perfecting the process of…

Let’s start with a prediction: Any move Ottawa makes toward a price on carbon pollution will be greeted with a chorus of concerns about competitiveness. Expect to hear that companies will be at risk. That some will pull up stakes and move to jurisdictions where they can pollute more. And that we’ll all be poorer…

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and premiers in Vancouver, March 3, 2016

Even the very best get it wrong sometimes. That’s the only explanation we’ve got for a recent column from environmentalist Bill McKibben. In it, McKibben calls Justin Trudeau a “stunning hypocrite” on climate change whose actions make him a “brother” to climate sceptic Donald Trump. Most of the time, McKibben is a brilliant writer and…

Looking for a job in clean technology? They must be easy to spot, with more than 850 firms nationally employing more Canadians than the forestry, pharmaceutical, or medical device industries. In fact, there are more Canadian cleantech companies than aerospace (700) or automotive (450) firms. But would you recognize a clean technology job if you…

“We are witnessing a transformation of global power markets led by renewables.” Those were the words of Fatih Birol, executive director of the International Energy Agency—an institution often noted for its conservative tendencies when it comes to renewable energy. The global clean energy transition has taken hold. Hundreds of billions of dollars flow into new…

Tipping points: those elusive moments when a technology goes mainstream. Much has been written in the debate over whether that moment for renewable energy has passed, is fast approaching, or is still a ways away. The true tipping point will only become apparent in the rear-view mirror, and it won’t be defined by a single…

From a climate perspective, two big events set the context for Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s second budget. In December, Prime Minister Trudeau got his provincial and territorial counterparts (well, most of them) to agree to a new national climate plan, a Canadian first. And in January, Donald Trump was sworn in as the President of…

Last December, most premiers and the prime minister adopted a landmark national climate plan to cut carbon pollution and spur clean growth. For Canada’s clean energy sector, a national climate plan is incredibly welcome. It signals to developers and investors that Canada is an important market for climate solutions, and that the demand for clean…

We look forward to hearing from you.
