2012 Progress to Targets Report
As required every two years under the Greenhouse Gas Reductions Target Act, the 2012 Progress to Targets Report, Making Progress on B.C.'s Climate Action Plan, (PDF/6MB) has been released.
While most data available is limited to 2010, indicators do suggest that B.C. is within reach of meeting its 2012 interim GHG target of 6% below 2007 levels.

Climate Action for the 21st Century
Climate Action for the 21st Century demonstrates how government is acting decisively to mitigate and adapt to the direct consequences related to climate change, building on commitments contained in the Climate Action Plan which was released in 2008. It summarizes key initiatives and progress made through 2009 and describes actions that will be undertaken as government moves closer to its target.
The report fulfills the Greenhouse Gas Reductions Target Act requirements with respect to the progress, action and plans to achieve the emissions reduction targets.
