In this week’s episode of Policy Speaking, our host Edward Greenspon (PPF President & CEO) chats with the Honourable Jean Charest and Amanda Affonso looking at Canada’s efforts to balance national interests while decarbonizing.

They discuss leveraging Canada’s energy advantages and becoming policy shapers in the global race to net-zero carbon emissions. Hon. Jean Charest and Amanda Affonso also examine COP26, the implementation of the Paris Agreement, carbon border adjustments and rising energy prices. In answering questions from the audience, they stress policy considerations such as Indigenous engagement, incentives for small businesses and the political traits needed to move forward with the green energy transition. This episode also corresponds with the release of PPF’s latest report, CLIMATETIVENESS: What it takes for Canada to thrive in a net zero exporting world.
