GeekWire: Report calls for ‘mega-region’ to unite on climate as Cascadia leaders meet at U.S.-Canada border

  • September 12, 2022


“With 51 billion tons of greenhouse gases emitted annually across the globe, Cascadia alone can’t solve the urgent and massive climate challenge, but we can and must do our part by becoming the first sustainable mega-region,” write the Cascadia Innovation Corridor co-chairs, former Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire and Greg D’Avignon, president and CEO of the Business Council of B.C., introducing the report.

Prepared by Boston Consulting Group, the report was released Monday morning in advance of the Cascadia 2050 Vision conference, taking place over the next two days in Blaine, Wash., near the U.S.-Canada border.

A chart from the new report, “Cascadia 2050 Vision, Moving to Climate Action,” shows the potential trajectories of global greenhouse gas emissions, depending on different levels of action. (Source: Boston Consulting Group)
