Building Back Better Together – Canada and Europe, a virtual series under the banner of Ottawa Climate Talks and in partnership with the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Canada.
In the spirit of globalizing a green recovery, Building Back Better Together explores key insights for how the international community can build back better together post-COVID. The Roundtables bring together Canadian, German and other European experts, policy makers and business leaders to exchange insights from the current crisis and to reflect on climate action post-COVID in order to avoid a longer term catastrophe by sparking a global green recovery.
IN THIS VIRTUAL ROUNDTABLE:
An exploration of the more lucrative non-combustion uses for bitumen and how they could fit into the EU supply chain for lightweight vehicles (e.g. the German automotive industry), building materials and aircraft, among other possible uses and the opportunities this presents for Canada.
