The Government of Québec views the fight against climate change as a fundamental and top priority issue for Québec’s future. Working proactively with its partners, Québec will continue to move forward on the basis of progress that has already been accomplished.
With income derived mainly from the carbon market, the Government of Québec supports companies, Québec municipalities and private citizens in the transition to a low carbon world. By 2020, Québec will have invested more than 3.3 billion dollars to implement the measures set out in the 2013-2020 Climate Change Action Plan, measures that will enable us to reduce GHG emissions and better adapt to the consequences of climate change.
These measures call upon innovative solutions from our scientists and entrepreneurs and open the door to developing Québec expertise in cutting-edge niche markets that will enable Québec to accelerate its shift to a sustainable, prosperous and competitive economy. The fight against climate change is a promising pathway towards developing an economy that is both robust and low carbon.
Working together, we can fight climate change and ensure a better quality of life for our children. Let’s do it for them!
