Climate Change Strategy
Responsibility. Leadership. Action.
As a global energy producer, Alberta's challenges are perhaps bigger than those of other jurisdictions, but so too are the opportunities to find real and positive solutions to climate change.
It will take time and thoughtful actions to reduce Alberta's greenhouse gas emissions. The key is to start with what we know now and continue refining and adjusting our plans and actions over time, until our commitments for reductions are met.
Alberta's climate change strategy reflects the Alberta government's strong commitment to maintaining a healthy economy, securing Albertans? quality of life and protecting our environment.
It's a practical and comprehensive approach that addresses not only how much energy we use, but also how we can combine technology and expertise to capture emissions and produce cleaner energy for Alberta and the world.
The strategy is divided into three areas of focus:
- Conserving and Using Energy Efficiently
- Implementing Carbon Capture and Storage
- Greening Energy Production
