Facts about the CleanBC Industry Fund
  • In total, the previous three rounds of CleanBC Industry Fund projects are expected to reduce approximately six million tonnes of CO2 emissions over the next decade, the same emissions impact as removing 130,000 cars from the road each year over the same period.
  • The CleanBC Industry Fund is part of the Province’s plan to reduce emissions from industry, which includes goals:
    • to eliminate all industrial methane by 2035;
    • to integrate emission goals in the oil and gas royalty system; 
    • to support electrification through BC Hydro; and
    • to help all new industrial developments meet B.C.’s climate targets in 2030 and beyond.
  • 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.
  • To be eligible, applicants must have paid carbon tax and have emissions of more than 10,000 tonnes of CO2 per year under the Greenhouse Gas Industrial Reporting and Control Act.
