CleanBC | Government of British Columbia

Making B.C. industries the cleanest in the world by to support good jobs, be more efficient, and use cleaner energy

Along with our actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, CleanBC provides an effective blueprint to grow our economy. The low-carbon economy we’re moving to will bring opportunities across the province, so people can continue to live and work in the communities they call home.

As industry continues to work with the clean tech sector to develop innovative solutions that reduce emissions, we can market our products, services, and technology to a world that is increasingly demanding clean, low-carbon solutions.

Ramp up the CleanBC program for industry

  • Direct a portion of B.C.’s carbon tax paid by industry into incentives for cleaner operations and projects that will reduce emissions

Improve air quality by cutting air pollution

  • Reduce emissions from short-haul trucking and the transport of goods
