Facts about sectoral greenhouse gas targets, CleanBC Industry Fund

Sectoral greenhouse gas targets for 2030 are expressed as a percentage reduction from 2007 sector emissions. 

  • Target ranges for each sector:
    • transportation – 27 to 32%;
    • industry – 38 to 43%;
    • oil and gas – 33 to 38%; and
    • buildings and communities – 59 to 64%.
  • Sectoral targets were established based on emissions modelling done by the Climate Action Secretariat and input from engagement with a wide range of stakeholders and partners.

The CleanBC Industry Fund uses a portion of the carbon tax revenue paid by industry to fund emission-reducing projects with industry operators across sectors including mining, pulp and paper, cement, oil and gas, and agriculture.

  • To be eligible for funding through the CleanBC Industry Fund, applicants must have emissions over 10,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent per year.
  • CleanBC Industry Fund projects are chosen based on a competitive process and an evaluation of detailed project plans, business cases and the potential to cost-effectively reduce emissions.
