MAC Climate Change Position Statement 2000

As most Canadians now know, global climate change is an important environmental concern. Recognizing the need for concrete action, Canada is committed to taking a lead role in limiting the emissions that contribute to climate change. And we at The Mining Association of Canada are determined to be part of the solution.

MAC members recognize that a credible response to climate change requires industry action and leadership. We are therefore committing resources to produce innovations that will improve our use of energy and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. We at MAC are confident that by pursuing this goal, we can reap the many benefits – both environmental and competitive – that come from taking global leadership in eco-efficiency and environmental stewardship in our sector.
