What you can expect
Ministers Benoit Charette and Jonatan Julien will take part in a panel titled “Quebec’s integrated approach for a green economy: A win for Quebec and a win for the planet.” Resolutely committed to a green and resilient economy, the Gouvernement du Québec, via the Plan for a Green Economy 2030, will implement a set of measures aimed at achieving its target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 37.5% below the 1990 level by 2030 and at succeeding in its energy transition. The ministers will discuss the government’s preferred approach to achieving these goals, an approach based on Quebec’s great strengths including, first and foremost, its own electricity and creative expertise.
Mr. Fitzgibbon will participate in a panel of experts entitled “The clean battery in Quebec” during which he will present the development strategy of the Quebec battery industry. This activity will detail Quebec’s strengths in the production of battery components, including the use of strategic mineral resources available in Quebec, and will address the importance of establishing each step of the production chain of electric vehicles in Quebec.
In addition to the ministers, participants will also be able to hear from Ms. Sophie Brochu, President and CEO of Hydro-Québec. As Quebec plans its post-COVID-19 recovery, Ms. Brochu will speak with Bloomberg LP journalist and bureau chief Sandrine Rastello, about the transition to a low-carbon-emission economy and the technological advancements needed in order to accelerate the transition to a greener model and a cleaner recovery.
James Ehrlich, Founder, ReGen Villages Holding & EIR, Stanford University School of Medicine, as well as Erik Grab, Vice President of Strategic Anticipation, Innovation and Sustainable Development at Michelin, will also be speaking at the event. The two speakers will discuss the future of cities and urban mobility after COVID-19. As citizens put livability and sustainability higher in their priorities, cities have an unprecedented opportunity to reimagine themselves in every way. James Ehrlich and Erik Grab will therefore propose bold ideas to positively shape the future of cities for a better tomorrow.
