Why Dana joined Clean Prosperity
“People respond to incentives, both positive and negative. It is imperative that the climate policies adopted in Canada and benchmarked by the rest of the world create an incentive structure that is sustainable, both for the climate and for Canada’s long-term economic prosperity. Clean Prosperity’s focus on market-based emissions reduction policies strike an important balance between the dual goals of environmental and economic prosperity.”
