Climate Leadership Plan Deadline Extended

The Province is currently developing a new Climate Leadership Plan to move forward with provincial climate action commitments. Individuals and organizations wishing to provide written submissions about their vision for BC’s new climate action plan now have until Monday, September 14, 2015 to offer input.

A discussion paper has been prepared for the consideration of those making submissions along with those who have completed surveys.

In May 2015, the Province appointed a Climate Leadership Team to review options for economic development and greenhouse gas emissions reductions, as well as to make recommendations for the new Climate Leadership Plan. Representatives from the business, academic, and environmental communities, as well as First Nations and local governments, sit on the Climate Leadership Team.

British Columbians will have a second opportunity to provide input once the Climate Leadership Team has reviewed the first round of public feedback and made recommendations to government. The Province plans to release a draft Climate Leadership Plan in December 2015 which the public can provide comment on the specific policies and actions proposed. The final Climate Leadership Plan will be released in March 2016.
