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.

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.
