Don’t miss the CMC Research Institutes panel on evaluating the business case for investing in carbon reducing technologies

The panel is being held in conjunction with the Clean Energy Ministerial / Mission Innovation 4 (CEM10 / MI-4) meetings in Vancouver on May 27-29. Ministers from over 25 countries are gathering to accelerate progress towards a clean energy future.

Speakers on the CMCRI panel will evaluate why it makes business sense to invest in carbon reducing technologies, even when the regulatory environment isn’t forcing it. Meeting investor expectations for climate risk strategies, reducing regulatory exposure, fulfilling the corporate mission, and generating revenue by using carbon to produce commercial goods are just a few of the areas that will be explored with this exceptional group of experts.

Moderator:
Sandra Odendahl, President and CEO, CMC Research Institutes
Panel:
Kate Chisholm, SVP, Chief Legal & Sustainability Officer, Capital Power
Wal Van Lierop, Executive Partner & Founding Chairman, Chrysalix
Sean Monkman, VP Technology Development, CarbonCure
Jonathan Moser, Head, Environment and Public Affairs Canada, LafargeHolcim

The event is free and open to CEM10 / MI-4 delegates and all guests registered for the Innovation Showcase.
