RICanada Statement in Response to the Federal Clean Fuel Standard Update

Renewable Industries Canada (RICanada) supports the Government of Canada’s decision to develop regulations for a Federal Clean Fuel Standard (CFS) for liquid transportation fuels, followed by gaseous and solid fuels.

A CFS for liquid transportation fuels prioritizes lowering greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Canada’s largest emitting sector. With similar policies in other jurisdictions there is precedent in place to create a successful CFS that utilizes accessible, low-carbon fuel pathways, specifically biofuels, to realize meaningful emission reductions.
