Province’s CleanBC climate plan to take global stage
George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, will introduce British Columbia’s CleanBC plan to global climate change leaders, as part of discussions at the United Nations COP24 climate change conference in Katowice, Poland. “Our message for the international audience at COP24 is that sub-national governments like B.C. can be difference-makers in the fight against climate change,” Heyman said. “We’re there to listen to ideas and to share how our plan puts our province on the path to a cleaner, better future – with a low-carbon economy that creates opportunities for all.” …Heyman will also receive the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Momentum for Change award, on behalf of British Columbia, for its Carbon Neutral Government Program, now in its 10th year of operation.
