A More Sustainable Future: Achieving Net Zero Together

Tuesday, March 28, 2023 | 13:00 – 14:00 (ET)

Climate change is the single greatest challenge of our time. With Canada’s climate warming twice as fast as the global average, catastrophic events such as heat waves, wildfires and floods are costing billions and putting communities and people at risk.

The steps needed to reduce climate risk require transition and adaptation plans which are already well underway. To avert the worst impacts of climate change, the Government of Canada has set an ambitious climate target of 40-45% emissions reductions by 2030 and is committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

Public sector organizations in Canada and around the world are responding to sustainability challenges with digital and data solutions, AI, hybrid cloud, and ecosystem partnerships. But it’s not just about the data or the technology. It’s about being a catalyst for change, making the world better one community at a time.

Join us as our sponsor IBM together with senior stakeholders from the federal government discuss what it will take to achieve net zero and how together we can make that happen (e.g. sustainable procurement; Canada’s Net Zero Challenge)

Tuesday, March 28, 2023 | 13:00 – 14:00 (EDT)
