Alberta Climate Leadership Plan

Alberta is developing a new strategy on climate change based on recommendations put forward by the Climate Change Advisory Panel. The Alberta government is moving forward on four key priorities, including the carbon levy:

  • Phasing out emissions from coal-generated electricity and developing more renewable energy
  • Implementing a new carbon price on greenhouse gas emissions
  • A legislated oil sands emission limit
  • Employing a new methane emission reduction plan
