In December, you will have another chance to participate, in providing feedback on a more detailed draft plan.
In 2007, B.C. set greenhouse gas reduction targets based on the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the world’s foremost authority on the subject.
Since then, much has been accomplished. We have introduced North America’s first revenue-neutral carbon tax and achieved carbon neutral government every year since 2010. We have started down a path to a low-carbon future.
In 2008, government launched the Climate Action Plan to take B.C. part way to meeting its reduction targets. The Climate Leadership Plan will build on that work and move the province closer to its long-term goals.
So please go ahead, read the Discussion Paper and then take the online survey.
