Thank you to all those who participated in our climate action consultation for the development of B.C.’s Climate Leadership Plan.
The Climate Leadership Plan was released in August 2016 and presents the next steps B.C. is taking to fight climate change. The plan contains 21 new strategic actions spanning the province’s transportation and industrial sectors, along with communities, the built environment and government operations.
The plan reflects recommendations made by the Climate Leadership Team and feedback received through two public engagements from stakeholders and citizens, as well as engagement with sector-specific groups.
Thousands of organizations, families and individuals provided input during the two public engagements through online surveys, forms, emails and detailed written submissions.
This website provides information about the development of the Climate Leadership Plan including feedback from the public engagements and recommendations from the Climate Leadership Team.

Thank you for taking part in this important process.
Building a Low Carbon Future
In 2007, B.C. set greenhouse gas reduction targets based on the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the world’s foremost authority on the subject. Since then, much has been accomplished. We have introduced North America’s first revenue-neutral carbon tax and achieved carbon neutral government every year since 2010. We have started down a path to a low-carbon future.
In 2008, Government launched the Climate Action Plan to take B.C. part way to meeting its reduction targets.
In 2016, B.C. released the Climate Leadership Plan to guide our next set of actions to help meet our 2050 emissions reduction target of 80% below 2007 levels.
