Canadian Fuels Association response to Bill C-12 net zero legislation

 |  Energy, Fossil Fuels, Fuels, Renewable Energy

Today, the Government of Canada introduced new legislation that outlines its commitment to net zero by 2050.

The Canadian Fuels Association (CFA) believes that there is no ‘one-size-fits all’ solution when it comes to addressing Canada’s challenges around climate change. Canada is a country with diverse energy needs that will require a range of options to meet the expectations and requirements of all individuals and businesses.

Earlier this week, CFA released Driving to 2050. It is our sector’s vision for the future and is aligned with Canada’s commitment to transition to a low-carbon economy. Driving to 2050 highlights how the companies that produce and distribute transportation fuels across Canada will use innovation and embrace new technologies in order to continue to support a strong, resilient economy while contributing to Canada’s climate change goals.

Fortunately, we don’t need to start from scratch when we think about building a greener transportation network.  Canada has an opportunity to adapt and leverage our existing transportation fuels infrastructure to support the government’s climate goals without compromising our ability to move people and goods within our borders and beyond.

CFA and its members look forward to collaborating with the government and other industries as part of the Advisory Board and the development of sectoral strategies as identified in today’s announcement.  We are committed to working together toward lowering emissions and developing innovative solutions to Canada’s climate change challenge.  Also, the hard work that our industry has done in developing Driving to 2050 would make a representative from the transportation fuels sector an excellent addition to the government’s Net-Zero Advisory Board.

We see remarkable changes ahead and we believe that liquid transportation fuels (gasoline, diesel and aviation fuels) will play an important role in Canada’s low-carbon future and will continue to be a significant part of Canada’s energy mix for generations to come.
