Support an economy in line with climate reality

Businesses and other economic development stakeholders have a key role to play in order to maintain and reinforce Quebec’s social and economic prosperity. The program will develop knowledge and tools to consolidate the resilience of economic players by accounting for climate change risks and opportunities in their decision-making, planning, risk management and operation processes.

Issues

  • Impacts for a large number of economic sectors, supply and demand, jobs and supply chains

  • Poor consideration of the consequences of climate change, including repercussions on the value chain and the development of social and economic opportunities

  • The level of climate change mobilization varies greatly from one economic sector to another.

Objectives

In collaboration with authorities, economic development organizations, major investors, stakeholders, economic sectors as well as regions:

  • Consolidate and mobilize the stakeholder network

  • Develop knowledge on climate change-related vulnerabilities, risks, solutions and opportunities for the economic system and identify priorities at different scales of intervention

  • Stimulate business model renewal as well as the development of innovative and more competitive business initiatives in a changing economy
