Clean Energy Canada and Blue Green Canada Submission: National Infrastructure Assessment

This submission provides comments to inform and support the development of Canada’s first National Infrastructure Assessment. This is a timely and important initiative that should support Canada’s pathway to net-zero emissions by 2050 by outlining our infrastructure needs, priorities, and challenges.

Our comments focus on one key aspect of public infrastructure: how governments can use their public infrastructure dollars to prioritize environmentally sustainable, low-carbon construction materials. This approach is known as Buy Clean and is gathering momentum as a tool to reduce carbon emissions, support domestic jobs and manufacturing, and position Canadian industry to thrive in the low-carbon economy.
