What WWF is doing
- Change the supply. Renewable energy sources account for 16 per cent of our country’s total primary energy supply. Government leaders, energy experts and major corporations all recognize the need for a Canadian energy strategy. Let’s make sure that strategy vastly increases Canada’s investment in developing our renewable energy potential.
- Change the way we move people and goods. Transportation accounts for about 30 per cent of our total greenhouse gas emissions. We need to develop more sustainable options, like investing in better transit; building walk-able and bike-able cities, and switching to electronic vehicles.
- Bolster and protect progressive provincial renewable energy policies.
- Hold governments accountable to commitments, such as ending federal subsidies for oil, coal and gas.
- Bring our scientific expertise and credibility to energy discussions across the country. This way, we will ensure that Canadians, like you, have a meaningful and informed voice in deciding our nation’s energy future.
