Keeping Canada liveable for generations to come requires urgent action to combat the climate crisis – and each province has a part to play. For British Columbia, that means strengthening and enforcing provincial climate laws and setting serious targets to hold industry accountable to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
Ecojustice’s scientists and lawyers identified climate law reform as an essential step on B.C.’s path to a sustainable future. That’s why we’re part of an active coalition of organizations – alongside Pembina Institute, Sierra Club BC, West Coast Environmental Law, Georgia Strait Alliance and Stand.Earth – fighting for better climate laws in B.C.
There is no time to waste in the fight against climate change. B.C. is already a year late in developing a comprehensive plan to meet its 2030 emission targets. The province must act quickly to finalize and implement this plan and set us on the path to net-zero emissions by 2050.
