Net-Zero in the North: How early-stage VCs will be critical to decarbonizing the Canadian economy

Daniel Armali July 5, 2022

Canada is warming at twice the global average and fragile ecosystems imperative to global carbon storage, such as the Boreal Forest and Canadian Arctic, are becoming increasingly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. On the other hand, Canada also continues to be one of the largest extractive industry players with one of the largest carbon footprint per capita in the world. At this intersection emerges some of the biggest opportunities for climate tech to scale with impact. This discussion will uncover the often overlooked opportunities for early-stage VCs and entrepreneurs in Canada and how partnerships with later stage players will be imperative to achieving net-zero goals by 2050.
