(TORONTO- May 24, 2022) – Today, Rocco Rossi, President and CEO, Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC), released the following statement calling on all parties to commit to evidence-based climate policies.
“As Ontario emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot forget about another critical systemic threat: climate change. Its impacts are already being felt across Ontario as extreme weather events disrupt livelihoods, infrastructure, access to natural resources, and community health and well-being. If Ontario wants to remain an attractive place for business investments, its next government will need to provide a predictable path forward for climate action that is based on sound evidence.Climate policies critical to business confidence this election Click To Tweet
“Organizations across Ontario are developing and investing in innovative approaches, like decarbonization and energy efficiency, that will support both climate action and long-term economic recovery. Our members are uniquely positioned to tackle the climate crisis with made-in-Ontario solutions in all sectors that are a win-win for both the environment and the economy. What we need to see from Ontario’s next government is a commitment to move forward with a comprehensive strategy that incentivizes and not obstructs these investments.”
