The global economy is in the midst of a transformation towards a new, low-pollution model built around clean innovation. Canadian entrepreneurs in different sectors across the country, both big and small, are beginning to succeed in growing businesses that build a cleaner economy. They're demonstrating that such a shift is possible, but only if we provide the right conditions for success.
