2030 Emissions Reduction Plan – From Environment and Climate Change Canada
Moving Toward Energy Efficiency, Clean Air, and a Strong Economy.
People have made it clear what they want for the future: clean air, good jobs, a healthy living environment, and a strong economy.
Based on the needs of the masses, the Canadian Government is actioning their plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to fight climate change. The plan aims to strengthen our economy with sustainable housing, jobs, and environmentally friendly industrial growth.
The 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan is an aggressive and feasible guide that frames an area-by-area way for Canada to meet at it’s goals of a decrease of 40% of the 2005 levels by 2030 and net-zero emissions by 2050.
The road-map of the Emissions Reduction Plan is the result of input from over 30,000 people across Canada, Indigenous Peoples, industry, and the independent Net-Zero Advisory Body.
With the focus of working towards targets of reducing energy costs for homes and buildings, while simultaneously driving down emissions to net-zero by 2050. Along with climate resiliency with the development of a $150 million Canada Green Buildings Strategy to promote better building envelopes and high-performance windows and doors.
With the input and strategies derived from each province, territory, and other partners, the plan will roll off of existing initiatives set out in the new policy, programs, incentives, and standards needed to push the massive retrofitting of existing structures. Together, these actions and others set out in the 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan, will assist Canadians in lower emissions, get a good deal on remodels and warming and cooling costs, while stimulating a well-paying position in the economy.
