Climate Change

Last Modified: 2016-11-14

Climate change is our new reality, affecting every aspect of our lives. The Province is committed to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions to 80% below 2007 levels by 2050, while preparing for climate impacts.

In 2008, B.C. launched its Climate Action Plan. By 2012, we met our first interim emission reduction target. We are now taking new action under the 2016 Climate Leadership Plan.

By integrating climate change considerations into decisions now, we can reduce future costs to society while building a more resilient economy based on clean energy sources.
