BC to partner with post-secondary institutions on climate action plan

January 10, 2019

Post-secondary institutions in British Columbia will play a central role in the province’s new climate action plan, reports The Ubyssey. The CleanBC plan aims to reduce pollution from energy consumption in the province, and the CleanBC Labour Readiness Plan, developed in partnership with post-secondary institutions, involves a plan to execute on the CleanBC strategy.  According to George Hoberg, a professor in the UBC School of Public Policy and Global Affairs who specializes in environmental policy, the plan is “quite ambitious.” But Hoberg adds that BC will not meet its target of reducing 2007-level emissions by 40% by 2030 without changes outside of the plan. Ubyssey (BC)
