Carbon and Greenhouse Gas Legislation in New Brunswick

Carbon & Greenhouse Gas Legislation - New Brunswick

Climate Change Plans

The province of New Brunswick has engaged in the production of yearly “Climate Change Action Reports” since 2007, calling for cooperation with industry to reduce provincial GHG emissions and to improve sustainability. Under the New Brunswick’s Electricity Act, the Renewable Portfolio Standard requires that the provincial power authority secure 40% of its energy acquired within the province from renewable sources by 2020. The province’s 2014 Climate Change Action Plan [PDF] also notes that the province will seek to work with “high emission industries, including the oil and gas sector” to require and harmonize reporting of greenhouse gas emissions data. New Brunswick does not currently have legislation addressing carbon taxation or pricing.

How does this policy compare with other regions in Canada?
