TOTAL (Mt/yr)
A Two Item Report Card
• Achieving the 166 Mt/yr target measures
commitment to the process
• Achieving the 61 Mt/yr reduction means
we have the capacity and the expertise
necessary to reduce our carbon emissions
Recommendation 1
• That the Province’s Climate Change
Action Plan Annual Report 2008-2009
include numbers showing real and
projected GHG reductions for each of the
sectoral initiatives for the years 20082014.
Recommendation 2
• That clarification be obtained as soon as
possible to determine offset protocol
equivalency provisions between the
federal government and the Government
of Ontario.
Recommendation 3
• That the newly created OPS Green Office
be provided with adequate staffing and
funding, and that its mandate include the
ability to set policy, collect and
disseminate information, coordinate
programs and evaluate progress in order
to enhance the process of greening the
government.
Recommendation 4
• That both the MNR and the MOE work
closely with the Premier’s Expert Panel on
Climate Change Adaptation to ensure that,
by the 2008-2009 Annual Report, they
have in place an approved climate change
adaptation strategy.
