Securing Ontario’s Economic Prosperity
The global economy in which Ontario operates is vastly different than it was a decade ago. It is more global, competitive and increasingly more demanding of responsible, productive and efficient management of natural capital. The recent statement by G7 Leaders about the need to phase out fossil fuel is but one harbinger of the growing move toward more environmentally sustainable energy systems and economies. These changes create opportunity for economies that can adapt and stay ahead of the curve. Ontario’s future prosperity will be defined by how its businesses – and governments – respond to changing climate and demand for greener products and services. Success will depend on how quickly we move relative to other economies that are respond ing to these same global trends.
This one-day conference will highlight the opportunities for Ontario to thrive in a global green economy, and how we can set the stage for innovation in public policy, in the private sector and in our communities to ensure the province’s long term prosperity.
