The Council of the Great Lakes Region and the United States Business Council for Sustainable Development are pleased to announce a strategic partnership to develop a new initiative called the Great Lakes Carbon Collaborative (GLCC).
Built to facilitate engagement across sectors, customers, and suppliers up and down the value stream, the Great Lakes Carbon Collaborative, will be driven by business and focused on developing and implementing initiatives that reduce carbon emissions across the Great Lakes economy while minimizing business impacts. Initial focus areas include electrification, low-emission generation technology, carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), ecosystem services, and the water-carbon nexus.
Regional businesses, research institutes, NGOs, and technology providers are invited to join this virtual Kick-Off Meeting for the binational Great Lakes Carbon Collaborative to come together and identify, learn about, and plan the next steps to execute a broad range of climate action strategies. Guests will also hear from panelists on emerging technologies and carbon reduction strategies tailored for the region. Facilitated discussions and breakout sessions will further connect the dots on shared challenges, opportunities, and paths forward.
