Calgary Climate Hub Wants ENMAX to go Net Zero by 2050

Calgary, Alberta – The Calgary Climate Hub this week launched a campaign to get Calgary’s electricity utility, ENMAX Corporation, to go net zero emissions by 2050.

“As we work towards economic recovery and diversification, more companies are demanding decisive action on climate,” said Dr. Joe Vipond, Co-chair of the Calgary Climate Hub. “Having our electricity generation net-zero would send a clear signal that Calgary is serious about the climate crisis and entering the green economy.” Read more about Calgary Climate Hub Wants ENMAX to go Net Zero by 2050

Climate change considerations in the new federal impact assessment regime

Jun 27 2020 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Canada’s new federal impact assessment legislation came into force in August 2019. It includes explicit requirements to take into account climate change considerations during assessment and decision-making phases. What does this mean? Details are still emerging, primarily in the form of draft guidance set to be finalized in the very near future. This Saturday Morning at the Law School session presents the new legislative context and comments on the details of climate change considerations available to date, including implications for review and approval of major resource projects. The presentation will also relate this material to the broader context of implementing Canada’s international climate change commitments and related domestic law and policy measures.

This event is sponsored by the Alberta Law Foundation.
