“In recent years, provinces have been engaged in something of a ‘race to the top’ on climate action,” said Mike Gerbis, chief executive officer of GLOBE 2016. “I’m looking forward to what I expect will be a spirited dialogue, as Ministers highlight the jobs, investment and other opportunities that their work on climate is unlocking in their respective jurisdictions.”
