Climate change and environmental research at the NRC

NRC leading environmental 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, we are committed to fighting climate change and addressing major Canadian and international environmental challenges.

Research on climate change mitigation and adaptation, environmental protection and clean technologies, are priorities for the NRC. Every year, our scientists publish over 100 peer-reviewed articles related to climate change and the environment.

Find out more about our work to fight climate change and protect the environment on this page.
