Natural Resources Summit
The Canadian Global Cities Council (CGCC), a Calgary Chamber led coalition of the eight largest metro Chambers of Commerce will be hosting the inaugural Natural Resources Summit in Calgary on October 2, 2019.
The goal of the summit is to encourage meaningful conversations about Canada’s potential to be a leader in natural resource development AND fight global climate change simultaneously.
We are at a critical point in Canada’s history, we cannot afford to think only in terms of “pro-energy” or “pro-environment”. We must recognize that we can and have done both and there is still more work to do. Canada’s Natural Resource Economy which includes agriculture, forestry, oil, gas, solar, wind, hydro, and nuclear, have taken significant steps in environmental stewardship, but these steps are not widely known.
The Natural Resources Summit will bring together leaders to deliver keynotes and participate in panel discussions to advance the conversations around our natural resources, to gain a better understanding of how industries can be supported and to chart a path forward to balance the environment, corporate social responsibility and competitiveness. We are working towards a national vision for our natural resources.
Join us on October 2, 2019 for the Natural Resource Summit –for a discussion on all aspects of Canada’s natural resource sector, predictions for the future, and environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.
This is about ‘AND’ conversations: we can meet the United Nations Sustainable Development goals and lead the world in both natural resources development AND reducing global emissions.
