Edmonton’s economy is strongly linked with this province’s energy sector. Finding the proper balance between responsible resource development and environmental protection is paramount. It is crucial that municipal, regional, provincial and federal government policies reflect that balance.
Particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to: market access for energy, regulation of energy developments, environmental protection, renewable energy, energy efficiency and impacts of environmental policy on business.
Once policy positions are established, they are submitted to appropriate levels of government in order to vocalize member concerns and influence the impact of government decisions on business. Additionally, each year the Edmonton Chamber has the unique opportunity to submit policies for consideration and potential approval to both the Alberta Chambers of Commerce and Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
This committee consists of a remarkable team of individuals that actively initiate positive change on behalf of businesses in Edmonton.
