A new SustainableSK brand and website was launched this week.
Premier Scott Moes says Saskatchewan has some of the highest-quality and sustainably produced food, fuel, and fertilizer and the new website will share that story.
He says the province is rising to the challenge when it comes to sustainable resources, environmental stewardship, community support, and clean energy.
"In the areas of sustainable resources, environmental stewardship, community support, and clean energy Saskatchewan is rising to the challenge. I would encourage everyone to take a look. The numbers tell an impressive story."
- Saskatchewan is the global leader in potash production (30 per cent of global production) and Saskatchewan’s potash production emits 50 per cent less emissions of our global competitors.
- Stats show that Saskatchewan producers sequester 12.8 million tonnes of carbon in their land due to zero till. That's the same as taking 2.78 million cars off the road every year.
- If all oil producing countries in the world adopted environmental regulations similar to Saskatchewan's, greenhouse gas emissions would be cut by 25 per cent.
- Saskatchewan's Enhanced Oil Recovery program has sequestered enough carbon to make 4.5 million homes energy neutral for an entire year.
