BC Green Party leader Andrew Weaver says the new plan will position the province for success as the world moves towards low-carbon emission initiatives and clean energy cities.
Weaver says he looks forward to working with the provincial government, business sectors and other stakeholders to put the plan into action.
One environmental group, Sierra Club BC, says the CleanBC plan will not reduce carbon emissions soon enough to meet climatologist’s ideal levels.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has stressed that we only have twelve years to keep warming below 1.5 degrees to ensure climate impacts on health, communities and economies do not worsen.
Sierra Club says the CleanBC plan will move the province in the right direction, but more needs to be done.
