CHEMISTRY: ESSENTIAL TO CANADA’S TRANSITION TO A LOW-CARBON ENERGY FUTURE

This paper charts a pathway for enabling policies that will leverage Canada’s low-carbon global energy advantage. Federal and provincial governments are seeking low-carbon energy solutions as they confront the impacts of climate change. Canada’s chemistry sector and its highly skilled workers are uniquely positioned to provide innovative solutions in the fight against climate change.

With the right policies and assistance from government, the chemistry sector could attract $25 billion in new investments by 2025. The positive impact of this new investment will not only spur economic growth and drive innovation — it will leverage the already considerable contribution that the Canadian chemistry sector makes in meeting rapidly growing global market demand for chemicals with the lowest carbon production available.
