British Columbia’s New Renewable Fuels Regime Delivers Environmental Benefits And New Investment

(OTTAWA) — The Canadian Renewable Fuels Association (CRFA) today greeted news of the government of British Columbia’s enactment of its Renewable and Low Carbon Fuel Regulation by describing it as an important boost for both the environment and our economy. The effect of the regulation is to amend the December 2008 Renewable Fuel Requirements Regulation to reduce the carbon intensity of transportation fuels by 10 per cent by 2020.

“The government of British Columbia has taken further steps to create a low-carbon future,” said Doug Hooper, Chair of the CRFA. “This approach provides industry with a framework that will generate jobs, increase economic activity and lower harmful greenhouse gas emissions.”
