The Canada Climate Law Initiative Releases Guide For Retailers

The Canada Climate Law Initiative (CCLI) is releasing its new guide for directors and officers of Canadian retail companies titled ‘Retail’s Route to Net-zero Emissions: The Canadian Retail Sector and Effective Climate Governance.’ Written by Dr. Janis Sarra, professor of law at the University of British Columbia and principal co-investigator of the CCLI, it will include a summary of legal duties of retail directors and officers in the transition to a net-zero economy, due to the retail sector contributing a total annual revenue exceeding $636 billion to the economy and 10.5 per cent of Canada’s total emissions.
