February 12, 2015 – The Province of Ontario has released a discussion paper to get input from the public and businesses about how best to tackle the challenges of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and how to adapt to a changed climate.
The discussion paper:
- Identifies the climate change challenge, the risks and threats it poses to Ontario’s environment, economy and way of life.
- Suggests actions that encourage individuals, businesses, government and communities to do more to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- Asks questions that will inform a comprehensive climate change strategy and action plan, to be released later this year.
