Climate action for agriculture

We are taking steps to adapt to climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in each of the province’s major economic sectors, including agriculture. Find out what agricultural producers can do to adapt to climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Adapting to climate change

Respond to climate change by taking advantage of new opportunities and reducing the risk posed by the negative impacts of climate change.

Reducing agricultural green house gas (GHG) emissions

The British Columbia Greenhouse Gas Inventory reports that agriculture activities account for approximately 3% of B.C.’s total emissions. The major sources of agricultural GHG emissions include enteric fermentation, manure management, and agricultural soils. Improved management practices can reduce your operation's greenhouse gas emissions and may result in reducing operational costs and have environmental and adaptation co-benefits.
