BC businesses support a stronger carbon tax

 

British Columbia’s carbon tax has been an environmental and economic success.

The Board of Change, Clean Energy BC, Climate Smart, the Pembina Institute and Clean Energy Canada are working with B.C. businesses to register their support for a stronger carbon tax during the ongoing Climate Leadership Plan consultation.

As leaders in Canada and around the world commit to stronger and stronger climate-change policies, B.C.’s carbon tax has remained frozen since 2013. The result: carbon pollution is once again on the rise in the province, and we risk being left behind as the world shifts to a low-carbon economy.

B.C. has the opportunity to get back on track with its forthcoming Climate Leadership Plan. To be effective, the plan must include a commitment to strengthen the carbon tax, as recommended by the province’s Climate Leadership Team.

We hope you will consider signing your business on to the following letter. Please note the deadline for signatories is March 23, 2016.
