It is commonly held that environmental progress comes at an economic cost. The purpose of this project is to demonstrate that is not necessarily the case, and to develop a Sustainable Prosperity Framework for Canada which will accelerate progress on specific policy reforms across a range of enviroment-economy issues. This project will result in a framework outlining not only carbon and climate change recommendations, but other natural capital management strategies ranging from wood to mineral use strategies and technological innovations aimed at reducing pollution and waste. The framework will be assessed by stakeholders from academia, industry and government.
