UNFCC Kyoto Protocol

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Kyoto Protocol

UNFCC – Kyoto Protocol - an international agreement linked to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The major feature of the Kyoto Protocol is that it sets binding targets for 37 industrialized countries and the European community for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions .These amount to an average of five per cent against 1990 levels over the five-year period 2008-2012.

The Specified Gas Emitters Regulation of Alberta

The Specified Gas Emitters Regulation of Alberta

The Specified Gas Emitters Regulation of Alberta – set GHG intensity limits for large emitters of GHG in Alberta, applied to all facilities in Alberta that emitted equal to or greater than 100,000 tonnes of GHG emissions in carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) units in 2003 or in any year since. Under the Regulation a 12% intensity reduction are being applied to the average of that facility’s 2003-2005 baseline emissions intensity for established facilities. Established facilities are those that completed their first year of commercial operation before January 1, 2000, or have completed eight years of commercial operation. New facilities are those that completed the first year of commercial operation on December 31, 2000 or a subsequent year and have completed less than eight years of commercial operation. Emission intensity reductions for new facilities are phased in over a 6-year period. The baseline emissions intensity for new facilities is established based on the third year of commercial operation. New facilities are required to reduce emissions starting with the fourth year of commercial operation by 2%, and then by 2% every year after, until the 12% reduction target has been achieved.

Western Climate Initiative

Western Climate Initiative

Western Climate Initiative (WCI) - a collaboration of independent jurisdictions who commit to work together to identify, evaluates, and implements policies to tackle climate change at a regional level.

The WCI Partner jurisdictions recognize the importance of collaborating with the other regional initiatives currently underway (i.e., the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative in the Northeast U.S. and the Midwest Greenhouse Gas Accord in Midwest North America) and with the U.S. and Canadian federal governments.
