This Climate Change Action Plan 2014–2020 builds and establishes 2020 and 2050 provincial GHG emissions reduction targets of 10 percent below 1990 levels by 2020 and 75 to 85 percent below 2001 levels by 2050. It is a long-term strategy achieved through key incremental actions, many described in the plan, while other actions will evolve during the next six years.

The plan includes actions in the following areas: Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency; Transportation; Waste Reduction and Diversion; Industrial Sources; Government Leading by Example; Adaptation; and Partnerships and Communication.

The plan includes studies of the feasibility of constructing new small-scale hydroelectricity generation projects, the assessment and development of a range of renewable energy generation opportunities, such as biomass, solar, wind and tidal, and the implementation of a forest biomass policy.
