Ontario Launches Global Climate Change Challenge

Ontario is challenging local and international companies to develop the next generation of transformative clean technologies to help fight climate change.

The Solutions 2030 Challenge encourages companies to develop breakthrough technologies that will help Ontario’s industrial plants reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, meet the targets set in Ontario’s Climate Change Action Plan, and increase innovation and entrepreneurship in the province. Ontario has provided support for the Solutions 2030 Challenge with proceeds from the province’s carbon market through the Green Investment Fund. The challenge will position Ontario as a global leader in building a low-carbon future while supporting job growth and strengthening the economy.

Eligible teams can apply through the Solutions 2030 online application portal by September 22, 2017. Selected teams will be awarded funding to take their transformative idea through prototype and demonstration stages in Ontario. International applicants are expected to establish a significant presence in the province and help Ontario meet its greenhouse gas targets beyond 2030.

Helping businesses innovate while lowering greenhouse gas emissions is part of Ontario’s plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
