Capping Oil and Gas Emissions

The Pembina Institute’s executive director, Chris Severson-Baker, will be on a panel discussion called “Capping Oil and Gas Emissions” at 4:35pm ET.

Scientists are clear that to avoid the worst consequences of climate change we need to attain net zero emissions by 2050 and follow a steady emissions reduction trajectory between now and 2050. This is a key reason countries must set interim reduction targets like Canada’s 2030 target. This session explores the emissions performance of the domestic oil and gas sector as it relates to global peers, in the context of meeting Canada’s 2030 target, the upcoming regulatory cap on oil and gas emissions, and future Canadian competitiveness.

Moderator: Dan Wicklum, NZAB ​​​​​​
