EXECUTIVE SUMMARY — Zeroing in on Emissions: Canada’s Clean Power Pathways
David Suzuki Foundation
This is the executive summary of a report that undertakes an extensive review of global and Canadian decarbonization models and studies. The report highlights ten technically feasible strategies, actions and considerations that a wide range of experts agree will be front and centre in any effective effort to zero out Canada’s emissions by the middle of this century, as science on climate change says is required:
- Accelerate clean power
- Do more with less energy
- Electrify just about everything
- Free industry from emissions
- Switch to renewable fuels
- Mobilize money
- Level the playing field
- Reimagine our communities
- Focus on what really matters
- Bring everyone along
Together, these strategies are a litmus test for credible climate plans.
