This course is presented in partnership with Energy Efficiency Alberta. Energy Efficiency Alberta covers 50% of the course fees for residents of Alberta. (The prices announced are already discounted.)
Over the past few years, there has been an increasing number of regulations, policies, programs and incentives aimed at reducing Greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) in Canada. The Alberta Gouvernment has set forth its own regulations through the Climate Leadership Plan, which has at its centre the imposition of a carbon levy (tax). Specifically targeting carbon and coal emissions, Alberta’s tax on carbon increased 50% in 2018 (to $30/tonne), and now includes a few industry-related hard caps. This is expected to produce approximately $3 billion in revenue for the province, which will then be used to finance energy and building retrofits, renewable projects, and a few large-scale infrastructure (transportation) projects. With the carbon levy and climate change policy in place in Alberta comes a set of obligations and requirements for organizations. However, it also creates a unique set of opportunities. In this course, participants will learn about both - and will be empowered with a sense of how to manage the carbon levy.
At the conclusion of this training session, participants will be able to:
- Understand the Climate Change policy in effect in Alberta
- Discern the carbon levy price structure and corresponding opportunities
- Assess how their organization can participate in the Alberta Carbon Offset Systems
- Identify the regulatory and legal requirements of the carbon levy for their organization
- Be aware of the programs and incentives have been created as a result of the carbon levy
Who should attend?
- Program managers for GHG reduction and climate-change programs
- Sustainability managers and consultants
- Engineers and energy managers involved in GHG reporting and emissions reduction
- Professionals involved in carbon financing or carbon offsets
Please note that this interactive workshop is limited to 18 participants.
