The Canadian government and all four Atlantic provinces have committed to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 at the latest. The transition to net-zero will impact all businesses, not just large emitters.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) will face higher costs for transportation, heating, and electricity due to government climate actions. They will need to consider changes to their transportation fleet, buildings, and how they produce. SMEs are also starting to face pressures to prepare for net-zero from their supply chain, investors, and employees.
Join Atlantic Provinces Economic Council (APEC) for a free webinar on April 5, 2023, to learn more about how this transition to net-zero will affect your business and what you can do about it. Full event details, including speaker bios, are available on the event website.
Lana Asaff, APEC Senior Economist, will provide an overview of how government climate measures will affect SMEs. She will also explain what else will drive firms to make changes and investments to improve their environmental footprint.
J.D. Irving Inc. will explain what they are doing to prepare for net-zero and how it will affect their supply chain.
Other Atlantic businesses will share their experiences with investments to reduce their carbon footprint.
David Chaundy, APEC President and CEO, will moderate a Q&A with panelists.
