Advancing collaboration in global supply chains for carbon reductions worldwide
Critical metals are central to the transition to a net-zero emissions economy, while driving economic development
On 20 January 2022 we were pleased to welcome leaders at the highest levels of the private and public sector for an information-sharing session on a topic of vital global importance. The background to the event and a summary of proceedings is available below the following recording of the event.
'Global demand for critical minerals is increasing to support the transition to a low emissions global economy,' as Canadian leaders have announced in the context of net-zero emissions by 2050. 'Canada can leverage its mining and processing expertise and world leading environmental, social and governance credentials, and become the global supplier of choice for clean and advanced technologies.'
Thank you to all who have joined us through our partnership with Global Affairs Canada as we advance the conversation in 2022 - showcasing how Canada's private sector investors and innovators are delivered market-solutions to environmental objectives.
