We need to position ourselves to compete and prosper in an increasingly carbon-constrained global economy. Ensuring Canada is well-prepared to adapt to adapt and prosper as part of this new reality is the focus of a comprehensive policy research initiative by the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy (NRTEE), called Climate Prosperity.
This is the first in a series of reports from the two-year policy program called Climate Prosperity. In the global transition to a low-carbon economy, Canadian competitiveness is at stake. The report creates a Low Carbon Performance Index, and ranks Canada against other G8 countries in areas such as emissions and energy, skills, investment, innovation and governance.
