Achieving Net•Zero & Growing Canada's Economy
The goal of Net•Zero Conference & Expo is to grow Canada’s economic prosperity, while working towards carbon neutrality by 2050 (net zero 2050). In order to greatly reduce carbon emissions, almost every government and industry has a role to play; and to do it without harming Canada’s economic prosperity may be the largest challenge of them all.
With the 2015 Paris Agreement, nearly 200 nations submitted plans to cut greenhouse gas emissions. However, these measures are not nearly enough to meet the Paris goals and the agreement stipulates that countries would submit commitments to more radical cuts five years later.
To some degree, we all understand the impacts of emissions on climate change and the environment, however net-zero means a radical change across the entire economy. In order to reach net-zero, entire industries involved in the extraction of hydrocarbons, mining, forestry, manufacturing, shipping and transportation are being forced to adapt or become extinct.
While there have been great strides in renewable electricity, water reuse, and emissions reduction, more must be done to meet the Paris Agreement by 2050.
To achieve success, all industries and governments must come together to collaborate, share knowledge and influence change. Net•Zero brings together leading experts and organizations from around the world and from multiple sectors to showcase technology, innovation and thought leadership to provide a road map for the country to follow over the next thirty years.
This informative three-day event brings together stakeholders from government organizations, regulatory bodies, oil and gas producing companies, service and supply companies, research centres, and academic institutions to discuss and collaborate on various aspects of oil and gas methane emission detection, mitigation, and reporting, such as regulations, policies, research, technology development and deployment, and best practices within five streams: Methane, CCUS, Hydrogen, Electrification and Nuclear towards achieving net-zero by 2050.
This year’s forum will discuss current and future challenges facing the Canadian oil and gas industry, and take a closer look at the current state of opportunities as well as the challenges and opportunities available to support technology innovation and new practices.
