Canadian Academy of Engineering Oceans Seminar

On March 23rd, 2021 at 12:00 pm EDT, a virtual seminar on the topic of Net Zero and Industrial Activity in Canada’s Oceans will be hosted by the Canadian Academy of Engineering and National Engineering Month. The seminar will be 90-minutes long and begin with presentations by speakers Dr. Susan Molloy, Ms. Kendra MacDonald, Dr. Peter Noble and Dr. Neil Bose. After each presentation there will be an opportunity for the audience to ask the speaker questions. The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion with all speakers, which will be moderated by Ms. Jennifer Williams.

The focus of this panel will be on industrial activities in Canada’s oceans and opportunities to work toward net-zero carbon emissions. The ocean is experiencing significant impacts as a result of climate change and all sectors of the economy are challenged to achieve net-zero emissions from their operations. This panel will explore ocean industries from the perspective of reducing direct carbon emissions from operations, reductions in supply chain emissions and reductions in energy supply emissions.
