Corporate Knights—Roundtable Building Back Better
On June 4, 2020, Chair of the Board of Canada Infrastructure Bank (CIB), Michael Sabia, participated in Corporate Knights’ Building Back Better roundtable. Mr. Sabia reflected on how COVID-19 has set aside traditional business constraints and, in doing so, has given Canada the opportunity to rebuild its economy with new goals in mind.
Mr. Sabia believes the CIB can play a key role in Canada’s economic recovery through its infrastructure investments in cooperation with the private sector.
Mr. Sabia described the CIB’s potential and high-level outlook, including improving energy systems, Canada’s electricity grid, renewable electricity storage and low-carbon forms of transportation – both within and across cities – as well as digital connectivity.
