The B.C. Business Council says the province’s plan for reducing greenhouse gas emissions can position B.C. and its businesses as a supplier of choice for international markets seeking lower-carbon intensive energy and commodities.
It says there’s a need for greater understanding of the plan’s cost implications for both employers and individual B.C. residents.
It also says the council will work with the government to ensure policy solutions meet economic realities.
Council president and CEO Greg D’Avignon says B.C. can play an outsized role in reducing global climate impacts in high-emission jurisdictions while building a competitive and innovative economy at home.
