OTTAWA – Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault says Canada’s promised emissions cap on the oil and gas sector won’t be finalized for another year.
Canadian environment leaders at the COP27 climate talks in Egypt want Guilbeault to unveil the specific limit he intends to impose on emissions from the oil and gas sector and the timeline for how quickly he will require those emissions to come down.
But Guilbeault says those same climate leaders are very aware that developing regulations requires consultation, including with Indigenous Peoples.
The Liberals promised a cap on oil and gas emissions during the September 2021 election, and the final regulations are expected to be ready by the end of 2023.
Guilbeault says that is a “record time,” noting that it took more than five years to develop regulations for the clean fuel standard.
Environmental Defence and the Climate Action Network Canada are among the groups that have been calling for Canada to reduce emissions from oil and gas production by 60 per cent before 2030.
