The BC Government is in the process of developing a clean growth strategy, with intention of integrating the province’s goals for climate action, clean energy and sustainable economic growth. This strategy hopes to lay out a framework for a clean growth future, position BC as a leader in the global market for clean energy solutions, and provide a pathway to meet the province’s emission reduction targets.
Its first areas of priority include clean transportation, a clean growth program for industry and clean, energy efficient buildings. This past summer, the Government released three intentions papers outlining each of these priorities and asked the public for feedback.
Individuals and organizations provided input through online discussion forums and written submissions. The results of this engagement will inform the province’s vision and clean growth strategy, set to be released this fall. Areas in development for 2019 include:
- Low Carbon Energy
- Communities and Waste
- Public Sector Leadership
- Clean Transportation Systems
- Adapting to a Changing Climate
- Global Energy Opportunities
