With the United States back on track with climate change planning and Canada’s recently released plan, North America is set to act boldly on climate change issues.
Canada’s climate plan released in mid-December 2021 offers a pan-Canadian framework on clean growth and climate change, carbon pollution, carbon pricing, climate change resilience, clean technology and jobs. This will be a change worthy of some hope for 2021 and this important decade.
Here are the basics on Canada’s Climate Plan:
- Net-Zero Emissions by 2050: In late 2019, Canada announced it would begin work to develop a plan to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the decades ahead.
- Putting a price on pollution: How and why we’re putting a price on carbon pollution, the impact on GHGs and how it will benefit Canadians.
- Adapting to climate change in Canada: Protecting and improving human health; reducing climate-related risks; making infrastructure, natural areas, and the economy climate resilient; measuring progress.
- Clean technology, innovation and jobs: New ideas for clean growth and a low-carbon future.
- Expert engagement initiative on clean growth and climate change: Canadian institute to engage experts in advancing actions to encourage clean growth and address climate change.
- Actions to reduce emissions: Renewable energy, buildings, transportation, industry, forestry, agriculture and waste, pollutants, federal methane regulations for the upstream oil and gas sector.
