Canada in at the start of global clean-tech R&D mission

Canada has said that it will double its investment in clean-technology R&D as part of the Mission Innovation plan unveiled at the UN climate talks in Paris.

Canada plans to invest C$100 million a year in clean technology companies, and an additional C$200 million a year to support innovation and the use of clean technologies in natural-resources-related industries, Canada’s government has said.

Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister, said at the mission’s launch in Paris on 30 November: “A strong economy and healthy environment go hand-in-hand, and we are committed to leaving our children and grandchildren with a more sustainable and prosperous country. Mission Innovation will tap into the vast economic opportunities of our environment by helping to create the growth and jobs Canadians need.”
