Canada Talks Electric Cars WebinarEpisode #10 - "The Importance of EV Policy in Canada’s Clean Energy Future"
March 2nd, 2021 - 7:30PM EST
Come join us as we welcome Joanna Kyriazis to the webinar series.
Joanna works to develop and advance policy solutions that address climate change while promoting clean growth, with a specific focus on clean transportation. Based in Ottawa, she regularly connects with thought leaders, industry stakeholders, and policymakers at the federal level. Before joining Clean Energy Canada, Joanna worked as a management consultant helping businesses identify and manage climate change risks and opportunities. She also practiced as a lawyer advising governments and industry on climate change and energy law.
Canada has a car conundrum. Canadians drive the most polluting cars in the world due in part to a growing appetite for SUVs and trucks, and over the past 20 years, domestic carbon pollution from transportation has increased by nearly 30%. Over that same two-decade period, the number of vehicles being manufactured locally has fallen by 37%. Once a global top-five auto manufacturer, Canada now doesn’t even crack the top 10. Joanna will discuss Clean Energy Canada’s recent work on the solution to Canada’s car conundrum—zero-emission vehicles—and how, with a deliberate approach for drivers and industry, Canada can both cut pollution and set our auto sector up to compete in the global economy.
