Mr. Trudeau made this call during his statement at the UN Conference on Climate Change held in Glasgow, Scotland.
Canada’s carbon price table, according to Trudeau, is one of world´s most ambitious, rising to $170 per tonne in 2030, a shift is designed not only to make life cleaner but also to make it more affordable.
Pollution pricing, he explained, helps reduce emissions while catalyzing innovation.
“I ask other nations to do the same. Just as globally we have agreed on a minimum tax for companies, we must work together to guarantee that it is no longer free to pollute anywhere in the world”, Trudeau urged.
According to the Canadian leader, it is critical for his country to put a cap on oil and gas emissions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
We will put a limit on pollution from industries and thus ensure they are reduced at the pace and scale necessary to reach zero by 2050. It is not an easy task for a large oil and gas producing country like this.
Canada is warming twice as fast as the rest of the world, while the north registers extremely high temperatures three times faster than the rest of territories on the planet.
Trudeau urged all nations to unite and cooperate as they did during the new coronavirus pandemic, and act with the same sense of emergency in the face of the climate crisis and loss of biodiversity.
