Energy Futures Lab named by Clean50 One of Canada’s Top 20 Projects for 2018

 

Clean50

Ottawa, ON – September 25, 2017 – The Natural Step Canada is proud to announce that the Energy Futures Lab has been named one of Canada’s Top 20 Projects by the Clean50 Awards for outstanding contributors to clean capitalism.

The Energy Futures lab explores this question: How can Alberta’s leadership role in today’s energy system serve as a platform for transition to the energy system the future needs? It is a groundbreaking, Alberta-based multi-stakeholder initiative addressing the deeply polarized and polarizing nature of public dialogue on energy issues.

Collaboration is the Fuel to Power Alberta’s Energy Transition

Over a dozen EFL fellows took to the stage and shared their vision to repurpose Alberta’s existing assets and retain its reputation as a global energy leader. From our numerous retired well sites, to our unemployed workforce, our diverse communities, even our carbon waste; the possibilities to reclaim, retrain, reunite, and reengineer left the audience undeniably energized and eager to engage.

Fast-Tracking Clean Growth - An update from The Low Carbon Partnership

By Elizabeth, Mike, David, and Brent

It’s been a busy six months for The Low Carbon Partnership, and we wanted to update you on our progress.

As you may recall, we came together last spring to help Canadian businesses drive clean growth, reduce carbon emissions, and foster a prosperous, green, and healthy future.

We knew that companies and communities across the country need help cutting emissions, and we wanted to equip them with resources, expertise, and tools to innovate and compete.

Bridging the divide

By President & CEO, David Hughes and Chief Innovation Officer, Chad Park

Divided in the face of incredible challenges

You’ve been hearing about it for weeks, if not months. At the end of 2016, we find ourselves in a highly polarized, “post-truth” world. Forget about working together; based on what the media is telling us, people aren't even interested in hearing what the ‘other side’ has to say.

We are also closing the hottest year on record. NASA was able to lock this in as early as October. 2016 beat the previous record set by 2015 and that means that 16 of the 17 hottest years on record have been this century.

Sustainability Leaders. Bold Thinkers.
