Climate Change

Years of pollution produced by humans is causing unprecedented changes to the environment including global warming. This has caused the whole world’s climate to change which leads to things like melting glaciers and stronger storms.

British Columbia is a policy leader on climate actions to adapt our province to the impacts of climate change as well as mitigation measures to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions to 80% below 2007 levels by 2050.

In 2015, the Province launched the Climate Leadership Plan process in preparation for the COP21 international conference in Paris, and for final publication in spring 2016. For more information on documents and consultations, please visit Climate Leadership.
