Energize Ontario: Developing Sustainable Climate Action Policy

    Climate change is a global problem that requires a global solution. In recent years, businesses have emerged as some of the strongest advocates for a national climate and energy legislation that mandates the reductions of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

    Climate change is not strictly an environmental issue. Instead, it is multi-faceted, encompassing national security, international diplomacy, and most crucially for business, economic policy. On a fundamental level, businesses stress the need for a coherent national and North American strategy that will serve to strength the economy. The absence of a complete strategy creates uncertainty, which is a hindrance to sustained economic growth and an obstacle to the development of new markets and business opportunities.

    The Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) firmly believes that economic growth and prosperity provide the best conditions to address key challenges such as climate change. However, while the global response to climate change can be strengthened by the right trade policies, the wrong ones can also weaken it.
