While the global energy transition has given rise to new technologies and sectors focused on carbon reduction, it has also created a good deal of uncertainty for investors, particularly in countries like Canada where the energy industry plays a significant economic role. In this Monday Minute, we will look at the role policy can have in supporting the sectors and technologies that will help the world achieve Net Zero. We also dig into the data and how investors can identify real gamechangers — and avoid greenwashing.
