Climate action and accountability

Through CleanBC, the Province works with a range of partners to reduce emissions, create opportunities and manage risks from our changing climate. Learn more about B.C.’s progress and actions.

Each year, government publishes a climate change accountability report with the latest details on CleanBC actions and information on B.C.’s progress to our greenhouse gas targets.
