Energy, Environment and Transportation Policy

Energy, the environment, and transportation lie at the heart of Canada’s sustainable, long-term prosperity. How we respond to the risks, challenges, and opportunities presented by these elements affects our quality of life and relative position in the global economy.

The Energy, Environment and Transportation Policy team conducts independent, leading-edge policy research on issues that affect Canada’s energy and transportation sectors. Our goal is to advance sustainability by providing Canadian leaders with environmental, economic, and social insights and by advising on key policy issues.

Public awareness of the environmental impacts of energy development and use continues to grow. The Energy, Environment, and Transportation Policy group contributes to the forward, creative thinking needed to design strategies and policies that reduce long-term negative impacts.

Our Executive Networks allow you to engage with peers and stakeholders, networking and exchanging ideas with senior executives in Canada’s public and private sectors.

Our custom research services provide in-depth and independent analysis to help you answer challenging questions and gain further insights into key issues and best practices.
