Original language of petition: English
The Government of Canada has made environment and climate change a top priority, both in terms of working with the provinces and territories to develop a domestic action plan, as well as contributing meaningfully to international efforts to transition towards a low-carbon economy. The Government of Canada remains steadfast in its commitment to the goal of exceeding its Paris Agreement target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by more than 30 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030. Canada is also committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050.
Responsible business conduct is at the nexus of many priorities for Canada such as the respect for human rights and rights of Indigenous communities, the global fight against climate change, and inclusive trade. To this end, the Government of Canada expects Canadian companies active abroad to respect human rights, to operate transparently and in consultation with host governments and local communities, and to work in a socially and environmentally responsible manner, while respecting applicable laws.
At the global level, the Government of Canada recognizes that many countries cannot implement the measures required to face the global climate crisis without help. The Government of Canada therefore remains firmly committed to the collective goal of mobilizing US$100 billion in climate finance annually in 2020 and beyond. The Government of Canada will also continue to play a leadership role in supporting developing countries to address climate change and encouraging innovative approaches and partnerships to financing sustainable development to meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in developing countries.
Canada is committed to be a world leader for climate, both in terms of environmental action and peace promotion, and will continue to follow closely the discussions on ecocide at the international level.
