On June 30, 2015, Alberta has four climate change regulations that are set to expire, including the Specified Gas Emitters Regulation. Environment and Parks Minister Shannon Phillips committed today that new regulations will be in place before current regulations expire.
“This government will take leadership on the issue of climate change and make sure Alberta is part of crafting solutions with stakeholders, other provinces and the federal government.”
~ Shannon Phillips, Minister of Environment and Parks
Phillips also committed to a broad consultation that will take place over the next months. First steps will include an energy efficiency strategy and a renewable energy strategy.
