A year ago, B.C.’s third climate plan, CleanBC, garnered tremendous fanfare when it was released. As a busy 2019 winds down, it’s an opportune time to take stock and look ahead with the benefit of hindsight. B.C. has taken big steps forward in the past year, but 2020 will be the push-comes-to-shove moment for the province as the government charts a path to meeting our legislated 2030 target for reducing climate pollution.
An independent advisory committee will review progress and recommend changes to ensure B.C.’s targets are actually being met. The new accountability requirements will get even more specific with carbon pollution reduction targets for each sector, to be reviewed every five years.
By 2050, we need to eliminate carbon pollution coming from buildings. It’s estimated 70 per cent of buildings standing today will still be in use as of 2050. Between now and then, we will have only one or two can’t-miss opportunities to retrofit each of these buildings
