About CleanBC

CleanBC is government’s plan to lower climate-changing emissions by 40% by 2030.

We are collaborating with partners to protect nature, build a cleaner economy and prepare communities for our future climate. We work with:

  • Indigenous Nations, communities and organizations
  • Local governments
  • The Federal government
  • Utilities such as BC Hydro and FortisBC
  • Transit authorities such as TransLink and BC Transit
  • Crown corporations such as BC Ferries and BC Housing
  • Industry
  • Post-secondary institutions
  • Businesses
  • Not-for-profit organizations

Together we are making progress, but the current climate emergency demands that we act now. We’re doing more of the things that help our climate and coming up with new ideas to reach our climate targets.

B.C. Government’s role

Strong laws and sharing measurable outcomes of our work are key to protecting our environment. By putting our plans and actions into law, we are making a commitment to British Columbians. 

B.C. is a leader in taking action to protect and preserve our environment. We’re setting ambitious targets and introducing new ideas to address climate change.

Indigenous leaders and climate experts across B.C. have given feedback on our approach. We used that feedback to develop two strategies:

CleanBC Roadmap to 2030 builds on the original 2018 CleanBC plan [5MB PDF] and includes stronger measures to meet B.C.’s 2030 greenhouse gas reduction target. 

The B.C. government publishes a report each year outlining progress on climate action. Review B.C.’s latest Climate Change Accountability report.

CleanBC provides rebates and incentives to help people and businesses in British Columbia switch to cleaner homes, buildings, and transportation.
