National Round Table on the Environment – The Report (Release Date: Jan 7th 2008)

Canada needs economy-wide price on carbon emissions as soon as possible to achieve 65% reduction in GHG emissions by 2050

The NRTEE is pleased to present its final Advisory Report entitled Getting to 2050: Canada’s Transition to a Low-emission Future. This report is the culmination of a year of research, analysis, consultations and deliberations by the Round Table.

The Advisory Report sets out clear recommendations for effective action to achieve the government’s stated goal of deep, long-term greenhouse gas emission reductions of between 60-70% below current levels by 2050. It concludes that achieving this goal is feasible with the right policy pathway, at a manageable national economic cost over the long run.
