Figure 13.1: Value of Exports of Environmental and Clean Technologies (in $billions)

Data released by Statistics Canada show that the value of exports of environmental and clean technology products has generally increased between 2007 and 2016. More specifically, the value of exports of manufactured environmental and clean technology products has increased by 44.9% during this period. Accelerating this growth to double the value by 2025 of these clean technology exports, which are manufactured and developed in Canada, will help Canada become a global leader in this space.
