Building a diverse and resilient green economy
Turning Cost into Profit
Alberta maintains what may be considered the most pro-business climate in Canada. The enterprising mindset, attractive tax climate and facilitative regulatory environment make Alberta a great place to do businesses. Albertans look for opportunity and are hungry for new and innovative business ideas that can increase prosperity and promote a robust, stable economy.
Conventional world-wide wisdom appears to espouse the notion that the only way to support a green environment is through heavy regulations and restrictions. Although the business community in Alberta is committed both in principle and deed to “going green” and supporting responsible environmental practices, our entrepreneurial culture and strong pro-business values can lead to global misunderstandings and impact its reputation. Albertans are resistant to burdensome and onerous regulatory environmental law, in that it potentially represents significant cost to business. Special interest groups have attempted to cultivate a negative world view of Alberta and its environmental track record, pointing to the lack of oppressive environmental regulations. However, Albertans are open and eager to exploring new avenues that can preserve and sustain our environment while supporting increased prosperity. Albertans can create sustainable economic growth in a low-carbon energy future by laying the foundations for a diverse and resilient green economy.
