The Paris Accord has the goal of keeping global temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius this century, with efforts to keep it to less than 1.5 degrees. As part of its obligations, Canada has agreed to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30% from 2005 levels, before 2030.

The provincial Progressive Conservative party is currently developing climate change policy and has struck a volunteer non-partisan committee to determine how Newfoundland & Labrador can do its part in helping Canada meet its commitments to the Paris Accord. As part of its work the committee is interested in actions being taken by local companies to meet Paris Accord goals, and in the perceived future of the green economy in the province. We would very much like to hear responses from ocean technology companies to the following two questions:

1) Has your company been specifically tasked with reducing GHG emissions as part of Canada’s compliance with the Paris Accord? If so, are there goals and how are they being measured?

2) What kind of economic incentives do you think the provincial government can use to stimulate growth of the green economy in the ocean technology sector?
