NRC leading climate change research

Climate change will drastically increase the severity of many of the world's most pressing environmental issues. At the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), we are committed to fighting climate change and addressing major Canadian and international environmental challenges facing industry and governments. The NRC has a unique mandate to work with industry to develop the technologies, innovations and other tools to create a new climate economy.

Our activities are focused on clean energy, low-carbon transportation, industrial decarbonization, adaptation and resilience. Every year, our scientists publish over 100 peer-reviewed articles related to climate change and the environment.
