The Canadian Fuels Association and its members are well positioned to play a significant role in the Government of Canada’s plan for ‘A Healthy Environment and a Healthy Economy’ that was announced today.
This announcement represents a significant commitment by the government to accelerate the production of low carbon fuels, advance the Clean Fuel Standard and support collaboration around emerging technologies. We will be reviewing ‘A Healthy Environment and a Healthy Economy’ in detail over the coming weeks in order to assess the opportunities for our industry to support the implementation of this plan.
“The national transportation fuels sector will play a key role in Canada’s commitment to create jobs and support people, communities and the planet. Our vision of the future, Driving to 2050, includes innovative new technologies, collaboration within the transportation supply chain and the production of low carbon fuels to support Canada’s plan,” said Bob Larocque, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Fuels Association. “We welcome the opportunity to partner with government and other industries to build a strong and resilient economy while contributing meaningful reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.”
