Ontario's official debut on the carbon market
“In order to reach the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction objectives in Québec, we must first encourage citizens and businesses to reduce their energy consumption through properly adapted energy efficiency programs. Beyond that, GHG residual emissions must be reduced or offset in a variety of ways, including through the carbon market. We are delighted to see a third major player join us in this effort. The carbon market and the fight against climate change are opportunities for Québec, California, and now Ontario to move toward a greener economy, and we are proud to be a part of it,” said Stéphanie Trudeau, Senior Vice President, Regulatory, Customers and Communities at Énergir.
With more than $7 billion in assets, Énergir is a diversified energy company whose mission is to meet the energy needs of its 520,000 customers and the communities it serves in an increasingly sustainable way.
