Minister of Environment to Attend United Nations Climate Change Conference

Released on November 10, 2016

Environment Minister Scott Moe will represent the Government of Saskatchewan at the 22nd session of the Conference of Parties on Climate Change (COP22) in Marrakesh, Morocco.  Moe will attend from November 14-18 and take part in sessions on agriculture carbon offsets and carbon capture and storage, advancing the themes of climate mitigation, adaptation and technology.

“The conference will allow us to promote how Saskatchewan’s approach can deliver real global results in addressing climate change,” Moe said.  “We will share success stories showing how environmental stewardship can be achieved while protecting economic prosperity, such as our commitment to zero tillage, which has transformed our agricultural lands into tremendous soil sinks, absorbing millions of tonnes of carbon every year.  Our commitment to carbon capture and storage technology and our aggressive move toward renewable electrical generation technologies are two other key planks in our strategy.”

With an estimated 2,400 coal plants in development around the world, Saskatchewan maintains that carbon capture and storage technology has the potential to be a global climate change solution.  As well, Saskatchewan continues to move toward 50 per cent renewable capacity in its electricity generation mix by 2030, through the addition of wind and solar power, amongst other sources.

Moe will also be meeting with Moroccan pulse importers and a durum wheat processor.  Morocco is a key market for these Saskatchewan crops, with more than $190 million worth of durum and $5 million worth of lentils exported in 2015.  Saskatchewan accounted for 66 per cent of Canada’s total exports to Morocco in 2015.
