Canadian Environmental Update

With wildfires now burning in record numbers all year long, and with 2030 fast approaching, the race is on for the public and private sectors to meet environmental targets and get to Net Zero.

When it comes to reporting on our progress, including complicated metrics and scientific concepts, having the right information makes all the difference. The sky is always falling on social media and what you see isn’t always what you get, so publications such as CERG play a critical role in providing a reliable assortment of credible, vetted resources.

The way in which this information is communicated also makes a difference. The perils of misinformation and miscommunication are illustrated all around us and the stakes are high. Take for instance the passionate assortment of narratives when it comes to controversial discussions such as carbon pricing. Some are calling to “axe the tax”, some are satisfied with carbon rebates, while others point to the contributions that continue to support the fossil fuel industry. No matter which perspective resonates most with a particular reader, we all know decarbonization must happen one way or the other.

How do we find our way out of the proverbial rabbit hole?

CERG is a great place to start. Whether you’re a student doing research, a municipal manager responsible for infrastructure decisions, a project manager at a growing number of companies focused on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategies, or an environmental steward anywhere, this is a powerful periodical that has been carefully curated to support a successful search experience.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the team at Grey House Publishing for working with us to ensure this comprehensive guide reaches everyone who needs it.
