In 2015, for the first time ever, 196 countries came together for the United Nations Climate Change Conference to adopt the legally binding treaty on climate change commonly known as the "Paris Agreement" or "COP21". Baked into the Paris Agreement was the goal of limiting global warming to well below two degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels, and an undertaking to try to limit the global temperature rise to only 1.5 degrees Celsius.

COP26 took place between November 1 – 12, 2021 in Glasgow under the leadership of the United Kingdom and it is expected to be another inflection point in global energy sector development – re-energizing multilateral action to help deliver on the bold commitments made in Paris. While Canada's place at the table is assured, the exact outcome of COP26, what promises will be made and how the undertakings and commitments of other nations will impact and create new opportunities for Ontario, remain to be seen.

In this on-demand webinar our panelists take an in-depth look at the initial outcomes of COP26 and its anticipated impact on Ontario energy sector businesses, as well as on the stakeholders, service providers and consumers who rely upon them.
