IETA welcomes Ontario action to fight climate change

TORONTO, 12 February – IETA welcomes today’s release of a discussion paper outlining options to address climate change by Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change – which places the need for a carbon price at its core.

The province of Ontario is a welcome addition to a growing number of sub-nationals in North America that are taking steps to fight climate change. The government states in the paper that “carbon pricing is a climate-critical policy that will be driving emission reductions across Ontario’s economy”. It also recognizes the leadership role the private sector has taken to date, which the government will build on, and that all sectors of the economy need to play a role for any response to be successful.

“In the absence of strong national leadership, climate policy in North America is increasingly being driven by action at the sub-national level, including Ontario’s neighbour Québec,” says IETA President and CEO Dirk Forrister. “We welcome Ontario’s move to put a price on carbon and look forward to engaging the government on the advantages that cap and trade brings to reaching climate targets, while driving clean investment and innovation.”
