Oil & Gas Regulations SubmissionOctober 12, 2022
The SCC submitted a response to the Government of Canada on the options to cap GHG emissions in the oil and gas sector on September 30th. We proposed that:
- The focus should be on attracting and making decarbonization investments. Examining only 2 options for a complex industry and issue is limiting.
- The current proposal could result in Canada becoming uncompetitive globally.
- There are numerous other GHG policies that have been recently put forward, they need an opportunity to be fully implemented before more, new regulations are added.
- The government should avoid siloing sectors as cross-sector activities can accelerate decreases in the country’s total GHG emissions.
