The world needs more Canada

We must balance affordability, reliability and sustainability.
That's why we must advance responsibly produced natural gas exports to the world.

• Canadian liquefied natural gas (LNG) will significantly reduce global greenhouse gases by displacing coal-fired power in Asia with some of the lowest-emission LNG produced worldwide.  [1][2][3]

• B.C. LNG projects will create hundreds of billions of dollars in economic opportunities and countless of jobs for Canadians and Indigenous Peoples while promoting economic reconciliation with First Nations communities.  [2][3][4][5][8]

• Japan and South Korea are just a few of Canada’s trading partners who want more of our responsibly produced energy [6][7] – shouldn’t we do everything we can to help? 

• Converting just 20 per cent of Asia's coal-fired power plants to natural gas would induce emissions savings equivalent to Canada's total annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions [9]

• Independent academic studies have shown Canadian LNG to Asia to replace coal-fired power and heat generation can accomplish a 34-62 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions per unit of electricity generated  [10] 

• As the world approaches 9 billion people by 2050, we will need all forms of energy - oil, natural gas, nuclear, wind, hydro, solar, hydrogen, geothermal, etc. - to maintain adequate supplies. We can support all forms of energy to balance sustainability, energy security and affordability.
