From: Environment and Climate Change Canada

BERLIN, Germany, May 27, 2022  /CNW/ -  When it comes to keeping our air clean and protecting our planet, the world can't afford to take a step back. As the G7 Climate, Energy and Environment Ministers Meeting took place in Berlin, Germany this week, the world is under pressure to take urgent climate action in a way that addresses energy security issues and seizes the opportunities of a net-zero economy.

Over three days of meetings with their international counterparts, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, the Honourable Steven Guilbeault, and the Minister of Natural Resources, the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson championed Canada's international role in tackling climate change, building strong partnerships to advance energy and mineral security, and taking urgent action to protect nature and halt biodiversity loss. G7 countries have reaffirmed and strengthened commitments in these areas in a detailed communiqué.

In particular, Canada pursued and delivered progress on these key priorities:

Canada's domestic leadership in linking these three priorities?climate action, clean energy and nature protection?and showing concrete action allowed the Ministers to pull forward ambition on global commitments. This will be illustrated by the series of global events at which Canada will participate in the coming months, including the CETA Clean Technology Summit, Convention on Biological Diversity COP15 and the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP27.

Quotes

"Canada's priorities for climate action and nature protection were top of the agenda among our G7 partners. Partners agree that progress is being made, but we each need to accelerate our timelines. The world cannot wait?we must continue to mobilize and deliver action. G7 leaders have clearly said that securing energy security and fighting climate change are mutually reinforcing goals. The commitments we made today put Canada in a strong position to help the world fight climate change, protect nature, and build a strong future for people everywhere."
? The Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Environment and Climate Change

"As we move forward to build an economy and a world that are both clean and prosperous, working with international G7 partners on domestic and global climate commitments is key. It will be increasingly important in the future that there is enhanced coordination, and collective action, on energy and resource issues, on the part of all G7 countries. By working together, we can make real progress on clean power, on clean air, and on a clean future. Canada remains steadfast in leading the global energy markets and security to ensure support for the international community."
? The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources
