Speaker Series | Adopting Greener Technologies at Corporations – Challenges and Return on Investment

Paul Thornton

Senior Commercialization Officer

Canada has imposed a price on carbon pollution since 2019. As a result, Canada’s corporations are under increasing pressure to shift to operations that produce lower emissions and use cleaner technologies. However, corporations in many industries must first determine how to reduce carbon pollution while dealing with ageing facilities, infrastructure, and established supply chains. The adoption of new technologies, strategic changes in sourcing, and CO2 offsets are all tools available for reducing emissions and improving sustainability. However, implementing these tools and making the strategic investments that will green the business while enhancing competitiveness are significant challenges for corporations.

So how can New Brunswick corporations adapt, become greener, and maintain competitiveness as Canada and the world shift to a lower emissions future?

As part of our 4-part speaker series at R3 Cleantech, we’ll explore this question and highlight how some N.B. corporations are becoming sustainability leaders in their industries.

Part 3 of 4 in the series called Adopting Greener Technologies at Corporations- Challenges and Return on Investment will feature two leading N.B. enterprises rising to the challenge of reducing emissions and improving sustainability.
