CAPP Hoping Next Federal Government Works With Industry To Cut Emissions

One of the country’s biggest advocates for oil and natural gas is sharing industry recommendations for the next federal government.

The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) released its energy platform earlier this week ahead of next month’s snap election which highlights short, medium, and long term actions to help the sector and environment thrive.

“As economies around the world recover, global demand for energy is expected to continue growing,” said Tim McMillan, CAPP President and CEO

“At the same time, the focus on a sustainable future has never been greater.”

Some of the recommendations include recognizing the work the sector has done, expanding global access, and simply working together to cut emissions.

Suncor Energy, Canadian Natural Resources, Cenovus Energy, Imperial, and MEG Energy announced back in June a partnership to cut all their emissions by 2050 on their own.

“Canada’s energy sector has made tremendous progress reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and that continues, through significant investment in advanced technologies and knowledge sharing
across the industry,” added McMillan.

“Canadian producers of natural gas and oil provide a stable energy supply and are committed to finding efficient and effective pathways to a lower-carbon future.”

The snap election will be held on September 20.
