B.C. is taking action

We’re introducing new measures so we can meet our emissions targets by 2030 and reach net-zero by 2050

We have accomplished a lot with our CleanBC plan. But the scale of the climate emergency we are living through demands that we act with even greater urgency. That’s why we are scaling up measures that are working and introducing new ideas so we can meet our ambitious climate targets.

B.C. Government’s role

The Province’s main role is to develop programs and set policies. We also give funding and provide support to our partners.

We partner with:

CleanBC strategies

B.C. is a leader in taking strong action to protect and preserve our environment. We continue to set ambitious targets and introduce new ideas to address climate change. We’ve gotten input on our approach from people throughout the province, including Indigenous leaders and climate experts.

We used that feedback to set two strategies:

The B.C. government publishes a report each year outlining progress on climate action. Review B.C.’s latest Climate Change Accountability report [8.47MB PDF].

B.C. Government’s actions

We’re working to slow climate change and address its impacts in many parts of life.

  • Indigenous and government collaboration

    We’re working together to reduce pollution and help B.C. adapt to a changing climate.

    We’re working together to reduce pollution and help B.C. adapt to a changing climate.

  • Preparing ecosystems

    We’re protecting ecosystems and making it easier to reduce and reuse waste. We’re helping farms and forestry use clean energy and prepare for climate change.

    We’re protecting ecosystems and making it easier to reduce and reuse waste. We’re helping farms and forestry use clean energy and prepare for climate change.

  • Buildings and communities

    Energy keeps our society running. Right now, we rely on fossil fuels for most of our energy needs.

  • Economy, energy and industry

    We’re helping people and companies move to clean energy options.
