Theme 1: Canada’s Path to Net Zero

Canada remains among the lower performing countries in emissions mitigation as ranked by the Climate Change Performance Index. The Canadian government has committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 and proposed several plans, guidelines, and legislative measures towards this goal.

The CSPC Editorial Committee cordially invites editorials from all stakeholders, including representatives from industry, academia, government, and not-for-profit organizations, among others to respond to, comment on, and discuss paths forward to reach net-zero emissions.  We especially encourage submissions from industry, as well as  communities most susceptible to climate change, including from Indigenous communities and Canadian youth.

Editorials will be published on the CSPC website on a rolling basis as we receive them until May 31, 2024. Guidelines for submitting an editorial are available below.
