BC’s 55 million hectares of forests provide a rich array of benefits to all British Columbians. While much work has begun to decarbonise the sector, significant challenges are still ahead.
Our work is facilitating a competitive, valuable, and net zero forest sector through increased revenues generated through wildfire resiliency, sustainable value-add manufacturing and net zero operations by more than 20%.
Canada’s ability to sell carbon-neutral critical minerals to the clean tech sector requires a dramatic change in how mining operations are currently powered. Our aim is to connect 100% of active BC mines to clean energy systems.
The ability of both operational and planned mines to access carbon neutral or negative, sustainable and clean energy systems for their operations will significantly impact GHG emissions reductions for the mining sector and accelerate the sector’s ability to hit BC’s CleanEnergy emission reduction targets.
The Transportation sector accounts for the largest share of Provincial greenhouse gas emissions in British Columbia.
To transition the BC transportation sector to low-carbon, we're working to decrease transportation-related emissions by 50%.
Globally, over 10% of greenhouse gas emissions come from water-related categories, including utilities, land use, and water systems.
To address water treatment and distribution emissions, we're working to decrease municipal and industrial water loss by 10% or less through sustainable water solutions.
