Climate Changes Links & Resources
# Title  Link Description
1 ECCC GHG Reporting Program (GHGRP) – Facility GHG Data This site gives you access t all kinds of information about GHG emissions in Canada collected by Environment and Climate Change Canada(ECCC). One link I like is the Summary of GHG Emissions by Facility. There is information about the facility and about their GHG emissions. Surprising how much detail there is.
2 Summary of GHG Emissions by Facility – 2231 Canada, 267 BC This site is where you can find those details bout the facility and about their GHG emissions for 2017 and 2016.  You can search by province and apply filters to select your target facilities.  You can download as well.
3 GHG sources and sinks: executive summary 2020 This site provides you with the latest about GHG emissions across Canada and in the provinces.
4 BC MoECCS This is the home page of the BC Ministry of Climate Change Strategy. From here you can link to the full scope of their services.
5 Climate Change This is the Climate Change page of the BC Ministry of Climate Change Strategy. From here you can link to their incentive programs and what BC is doing for mitigation and adaptation
6 Local Governments ~200 municipalities This page drills down to the Local Governments, Communities and Built Environments. There are 4 key initiatives and links to many tools and resources related to local governments
7 Provincial Inventory This page drills down to the Public Sector Organizations and their climate action initiatives. You can find interesting reports and updates related to Carbon Neutral Governments.
8 Carbon Neutral Action Reports 127 PSOs This is the page to go to if you are interested in Carbon Neutral Governments
9 BC Climate Data and Information This is the launch page to BC information about the province’s inventory, large emitters facility inventories and community inventories.
10 BC Industry 191 reporters; 126>25kt There is some great detailed information about the GHG emissions of the largest facilities in BC by year and by single facility or linear facility. You can access 8 years of data from 2010. I suspect 218 will be added before long.
11 Climate Action Legislation Here is where you can find most of the BC Climate action legislation, especially that is applicable to industry, including the Carbon Tax.
12 GGIRCA This is the link to the Greenhouse Gas Industrial Reporting and Control Act (GGIRCA) that came into forces January 2016. 2-3 key regulations flow from this act that drive industry reporting of GHG emissions.
13 GGERR This link brings you to the content of reporting regulation that requires facilities emitting >10kt CO2e to report their GHG emissions and those >25kt CO2e to verify them as well. The methodologies and timing are included.
14 GGECR Currently, this regulation only applies to LNG facilities and there are only a few of these. This is the only regulation requiring industry to do something about their GHG emissions.
15 Quantify Industrial GHG emissions The details of how to quantify GHG emissions is provided at this link.
16 Quantification Methods – WCI The core requirements are in this PDF – the Final Essential Requirements of Mandatory Reporting using the Western Climate Initiative (WCI) methods for Canada.
17 Emissions Offset Projects This page is all about GHG emissions offset projects in BC. While most of the offsets have been purchased by BC Public Sector Organizations (PSOs), that is set to change with the federal Output Based Pricing System (OBPS) and related regulations. Stay tuned!
18 BC Carbon Registry This page takes you to the BC Carbon Registry. You can see the projects, project developers, the validation and verification bodies and more by logging in.
19 CleanBC Program for Industry One of BC’s incentive programs under the Clean BC plan. This program provided incentives for this year just by being a reporter (>10kt) – due to COVID-19. Look for the link to the CleanBC Industry Fund as well for further incentives.
20 Verify Emissions If you want to know about verification requirements under the Greenhouse Gas Emitters Reporting Regulation (GGERR), this is the link.
