megatons of GHG reduction by 2040

investment needed by 2050 to avoid worst effects of climate change
Overview

Canada is warming at double the rate of other countries, and we have one of the highest GHG emissions footprints in the world per capita.

While global carbon emissions dipped in 2020 due to pandemic restrictions, researchers forecast that they would rebound to 36.4 billion tonnes in 2021. With eight years left to rapidly mitigate the climate crisis, we must intervene to prevent the most disastrous consequences of climate change — now.

We already have a lot of the technology needed to solve the climate crisis. So, instead of focusing on the scale of the challenge, it’s time to adopt and scale up those solutions.

Mission from MaRS: Climate Impact Challenge aims to rapidly accelerate the adoption of our carbon-reducing innovations.
