The Clean Economy Alliance is a group of nearly 100 organizations representing a broad cross-section of Ontarians that have united to support the province of Ontario in showing leadership in addressing the crucial issue of climate change.

The Alliance includes prominent Ontario businesses, industry associations, clean tech companies, labour unions, farmers’ groups, health advocates, and environmental organizations.

Alliance members united in April 2015 in support of the Ontario government’s commitment to put a price on carbon pollution and develop a climate change strategy and action plan. Reducing pollution is the right thing to do and it’s also a smart thing to do. Efforts to cut carbon pollution will lead to cleaner air, improved personal and public health, new jobs, and new markets and opportunities for Ontario-based businesses in the global clean economy.

We don’t need to choose between a healthy economy and a healthy environment. We can and must have both. And we need to implement an effective Climate Action Plan to get us there.
