Atlantic Canada’s independent voice on economic issues

Net-Zero 2050: Why it matters for your business

April 5, 2023 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

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. They will need to consider changes to their transportation fleet, buildings and how they produce. In addition to government policies, SMEs are starting to face pressures to prepare for net-zero from their supply chain, investors and employees.   

This webinar discusses how the transition to net-zero will affect your business and what you can do about it.  



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, Limited 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.
