The event  featured two panels. The first panel: ‘Enhancing the Blueprint Policy’, applied a policy lens to the Clean Fuel Standard (CFS) with the objective of enhancing stakeholder submissions to Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) prior to the March 4th deadline. The discussion incorporated diverse perspectives to inform smart policy development that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and mitigates climate change.

The second panel of the event: ‘Economic Stimulus and Investment from the CFS’, provided an industry perspective on the CFS and similar programs, with an emphasis on how such policies will work to stimulate and impact investment in the industrial ecosystem, as well as their limitations and drawbacks.
