Consultations and Engagement

The Government of British Columbia has introduced a Bill to replace the Greenhouse Gas Reduction (Renewable and Low Carbon Fuel Requirements) Act (Act). The Bill can be accessed through the Legislative Assembly Hansard Debates website. The proposed regulations under the New Act are expected be introduced in the Fall of 2022 to align with a New Act in-force date of January 1, 2023.

The New Act would improve overall clarity for regulated industries, close compliance and enforcement gaps, and incorporate policy changes announced in the CleanBC Roadmap to 2030. As Part of the CleanBC Roadmap to 2030, the Ministry is considering increasing the stringency of the Low Carbon Fuel Standard, expanding it to apply to aviation fuels, and allowing new compliance options such as negative emissions technologies through direct air capture of greenhouse gases.
