Natural resources are central to Canada’s economy, but this resource-based system has also contributed to the climate crisis. To address the impacts of climate change, Canada must support innovations that promote sustainable development.
At OSPE’s 2022 Engineering Conference, Rabiz Foda (P.Eng., FEC, ICD.D, SMIEEE, MIET) will outline a vision for Canadian innovation on the principles of ESG (environmental, social and governance criteria). Foda will explore how Canadian science and technology professionals can build a sustainable future while promoting economic growth, social equity, and global development. His presentation (Environmental, Social and Governance Criteria and its Role in Climate Action) outlines a bold vision for the future and identifies the critical role engineers must play.
