A Net-Zero Emissions Future

We will achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

When it comes to fighting climate change, one thing is clear: doing less costs people more. The best way through the climate emergency we are all facing is forward – toward a net-zero emissions future.

Net-zero emissions – where there are no carbon emissions, or where emissions are completely offset by other actions that remove carbon from the atmosphere, such as planting trees – are essential to keeping the world our children and grandchildren grow up in safe and liveable.

To help achieve this goal by 2050, we will:

  • set legally-binding, five-year milestones, based on the advice of the experts and consultations with Canadians, to reach net-zero emissions;
  • appoint a group of scientists, economists, and experts to recommend the best path to get to net-zero;
  • exceed Canada’s 2030 emissions goal by introducing new carbon reducing measures; and
  • ensure energy workers and communities can shape their own futures by introducing a Just Transition Act, giving workers access to the training, support, and new opportunities needed to succeed in the clean economy.
