What is the Net Zero Challenge?
In February 2023, Calian enrolled in Canada’s Net Zero Challenge (NZC). The NZC is designed for both public and private sectors to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Led by the Government of Canada, the NZC encourages organizations across all industries to take steps towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions and addressing climate related issues. The Government of Canada has committed to reducing Canada's emissions by 40-45% from 2005 levels by 2030, putting Canada on a path to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
Which requirements did Calian meet?
To join the NZC, Calian committed to set a net-zero emissions target for 2050 for Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, while working toward a more sustainable future.
Within 12 months of joining NZC, the participants must complete the NZC Preliminary Participation Checklist. To meet the checklist requirements, we worked with a third-party vendor to complete a Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) gap analysis and develop a preliminary net-zero TCFD roadmap. TCFD is a key element of the international reporting standards that are expected to be adopted by most countries, including Canada, over the next few years.
We published our first TCFD report available here.
The Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Environment and Climate Change commented: “More and more businesses across Canada are aiming to make their facilities and operations net-zero—not just to fight climate change, but also to stimulate innovation, demonstrate corporate responsibility, and ensure their long-term competitiveness. By taking up the Net-Zero Challenge, alongside more than 130 other companies, Calian is spearheading Canada’s clean industrial advantage and the path toward a sustainable future.”
What are Calian’s next steps?
In 2024, Calian will provide submission of milestone 2, the Comprehensive Participation Checklist. To meet this requirement, Calian is conducting a climate scenario analysis to identify decarbonization priorities and set reduction targets as the company works towards net-zero.

Self-stigma and the deeper story we tell ourselves about seeking support for mental health
Beyond external stigma based on long-standing societal misconceptions around mental health, there’s an internal story we tell ourselves. It’s a story where we minimize the feelings we’re having, or even shame ourselves for feeling them in the first place.
