Energy Efficiency

The Issue

The Chamber maintains that a direct carbon pricing scheme (either in the form of a broad-based tax or through cap and trade) is not the appropriate mechanism for reducing greenhouse
gas (GHG) emissions in Saskatchewan. Instead, actively increasing energy efficiency and conservation to reduce GHG emissions is recommended. Membership has made it clear that the Chamber should continue to oppose the implementation of carbon pricing and instead support technological investments and incentives as a prudent way to reduce energy consumption.
