A Carbon Savings Account for Manitoba (EAC)

On June 12, 2018 the Manitoba government named its Expert Advisory Council (EAC), established to provide advice and recommendations to the government on implementing the Made-in-Manitoba Climate and Green Plan.

The first advisory report of the EAC, established under Section 7 of The Climate and Green Plan Implementation Act (the Act), has been published.

The report contains recommendations and advice for the Minister of Sustainable Development on establishing Manitoba’s first carbon savings account (CSA), setting out a Made-in-Manitoba GHG reduction goal with a series of measures that will result in tangible, measurable carbon emissions reductions for the province’s first five-year carbon savings account period of 2018-2022.
