Stakeholder Support

The Stakeholder Support section provides information, guidance and resources to help organizations meet their legislative or voluntary programming and reporting requirements. 

Reporting Industrial Emissions

Reliable and timely emissions data is essential to an effective greenhouse gas emission reduction program. In B.C. operations that emit 10,000 tonnes or more of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions per year are required to report their greenhouse gas emissions. Operations with GHG emissions of 25,000 tonnes (CO2e) or greater must have their emissions reports verified by an accredited third party.

The Greenhouse Gas Emission Reporting Regulation provides the statutory framework for operations reporting emissions for the 2016 reporting year.

Greenhouse Gas Emission Offset Projects

Greenhouse Gas (GHG) offset projects play an important role in the fight against climate change. An offset is a GHG reduction that is used to counterbalance, or offset, a GHG emission. Individuals and organizations can create GHG reductions elsewhere in order to offset their own direct GHG emissions.

Each year, GHG offset projects are reducing or removing greenhouse gas emissions throughout B.C. Revenues from the sale of GHG offsets are driving innovation and economic opportunities, and making clean technology projects a reality in B.C.  Purchase of offset units allows regulated operations, such as LNG facilities and the B.C. public sector, to satisfy their legislative requirements.

Emission offset projects in BC are regulated under the Greenhouse Gas Emission Control Regulation (PDF)

Carbon Neutral Government

B.C. is the first major jurisdiction in North America to become carbon neutral across its entire public sector. Recognizing that government is responsible for the carbon emissions it generates, carbon neutrality is about achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. The process involves reducing, measuring, offsetting and reporting on emissions.

Community Energy & Emissions Inventory (Local Government)

The Community Energy and Emissions Inventory (CEEI) helps local governments meet their Climate Action Charter commitment to measure and report on community greenhouse gas emissions. The CEEI collects data on greenhouse gas source sectors and calculates the size of each sector's carbon footprint for each local government jurisdiction across B.C. Additionally, the CEEI monitors supporting indicators from core sectors and other sources to help local governments track their progress in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
