Pembina Institute releases plan for achieving CleanBC goals

Pembina Institute releases plan for achieving CleanBC goals

VANCOUVER — The Pembina Institute is urging the Province of B.C. to use its recovery and stimulus plans to help create a low-carbon economy that generates jobs and protects the environment.

According to the Pembina Institute, a non-profit think-tank, the B.C. government should ensure that economic relief and stimulus programs enhance and accelerate progress toward the vision and goals of the province’s climate plan, CleanBC.

The institute released Rebuilding a Resilient B.C., its action plan for moving towards this goal. The plan explains four principles for a resilient recovery in B.C. and offers recommendations to support of low-carbon homes, buildings, clean transportation and clean energy.

These recommendations include:

  • Position B.C. to be a leading supplier of renewable fuels;
  • set B.C. on a path to be a leading producer and consumer of low-carbon and zero-carbon hydrogen;
  • grow and train the workforce and develop the supply chain for building retrofits;
  • raise incentive caps to deepen retrofits of homes and buildings;
  • provide funding for capital and operating costs for transit; and
  • invest in active transportation.

“Across Canada and elsewhere, B.C. is being commended for its deft navigation of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Karen Tam Wu, B.C. director for the Pembina Institute in a statement. “Now B.C. has another opportunity to show leadership — by rebuilding the economy to ensure our province’s future resilience.”
