The governments of Canada and Ontario have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Canadian Steel Producers Association to work together on reducing the industry’s greenhouse gas emissions.
The steel industry committed to “doing its share to help Canada meet its climate change commitments, provided this does not undermine the competitiveness of the industry or result in an unfair burden.” The government of Canada agreed to design targets to reflect this commitment and help the industry to develop new low-emission technologies.
The agreement includes the provision to examine near-term opportunities to improve energy efficiency and reduce emissions.
