Northern Energy Capital's Commitment to Net-Zero: 12-month update

Northern Energy Capital

Published February 24, 2024

At Northern Energy Capital (NEC), we are dedicated to leading by example in the clean energy transition. A year ago, we made a significant commitment towards a sustainable future by joining Environment and Climate Change Canada's Net-Zero Challenge. This ambitious initiative calls on organizations nationwide to take definitive steps towards achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, aligning with the global effort to mitigate climate change and transition towards a greener economy.

One year later, we are excited to share our progress and the actions NEC has taken on our journey to net-zero 2050. As part of our commitment, we've completed the first major milestone by submitting a Preliminary Net-Zero Plan to Environment and Climate Change Canada as part of our Challenge Participation Checklist.
