Canada’s Net Zero Future
Canada has a goal of reaching net zero emissions by 2050. The oil and gas industry is an integral part of Canada’s economy, but the country must be mindful to balance economic growth with environmental sustainability. Climate change poses both risks and opportunities for oil and gas companies in Canada, which are starting to take action now.
AiM wants to be a leader in climate change by aligning ourselves with the global energy transition.
What is net zero?
Achieving net-zero emissions means committing to a reduction and removal of greenhouse gases produced by activities, with consideration of what remaining emissions are present in the atmosphere.
Joint collaboration between small and medium enterprises and larger industries as a whole will support climate change policies and improve low-carbon practices throughout supply chains.
The next steps
The Canadian Institute for Climate Choices outlines that there are two possible strategies for achieving a net-zero future, ‘safe bets’ and ‘wild cards’.
Safe bets are technologies used in our current society that can be scaled to reach Canada’s 2030 target. This includes electric vehicles, carbon capture processes, and liquid biofuels. Wild cards carry with them a higher risk of expense or failure but also the potential for huge rewards such as supporting the global energy transition.
The best bet for achieving Canada’s 2050 net-zero goal is a combination of these strategies, supported by direct action from large industry players.
We at AIM are committed to net zero, which is why we’ve aligned ourselves with the global energy transition by dedicating our time to researching how it will be achieved.
