Managing Your Carbon Footprint: Impacts and Opportunities Arising From Alberta’s Climate Change Legislation
This article explores Alberta’s climate change policies and laws in conjunction with parallel federal climate change measures. The authors provide an overview of the existing regulatory structure applicable to industrial carbon emissions, and an evaluation of the recent evolution of the regulatory structure. The comprehensive regulatory structure as a whole is then analyzed for its practical impacts across industries, and the authors identify a number of strategies for oil and gas producers, natural gas-fired electricity generators, renewable power project developers, and public entities to manage their performance within the new Alberta governance model for climate change management.
