Issue Brief: ENGO Responses to the federal 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan

On March 29, 2022, the federal government released its 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan: Clean Air, Strong Economy. We’ve gathered some news and analysis of the plan, and reactions from the environmental non-profit sector.

While most groups felt that the plan was a step in the right direction, they stressed that successful emissions reductions will rely on urgent and rigorous implementation of the plan. Groups also identified that reductions targets, especially for the oil and gas sector, continue to be too low, and remain wary of the reliance on technological fixes such as carbon capture and storage.
