Michelle Mungall, Minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources, has issued the following statement:
“It is great to see British Columbia recognized for its leadership and innovation in energy efficiency. This shows we are on the right track with our government’s CleanBC plan to boost the economy, create good jobs for people and make life more affordable.
“British Columbia’s top rank in the Canadian Provincial Energy Efficiency Scorecard is the direct result of our innovative BC Energy Step Code for buildings and ambitious natural gas saving targets, as well as significant success in supporting the shift to electric vehicles.
“With our CleanBC plan, British Columbia is the leader in Canada for clean energy and climate action. Going forward, Efficiency Canada’s scorecard will help us measure the positive impacts of the actions we are taking to increase energy efficiency in buildings, transportation and industry as we continue working toward a cleaner, stronger province."

CleanBC is the province's pathway to a more prosperous, balanced and sustainable future. It was developed in collaboration with the BC Green Party caucus, and supports the commitment in the Confidence and Supply Agreement to implement climate action to meet B.C.’s emission targets: https://cleanbc.gov.bc.ca/
