ABSTRACT
On January 1, 2017 the Province of Ontario implemented a Greenhouse Gas Cap and Trade program compatible with California and Quebec. Revenue generated by the program is required to be invested into greenhouse gas and climate change mitigation projects in Ontario. The TargetGHG program of the Ontario Centres of Excellence works with Ontario’s industrial sectors to reduce GHG emissions by providing matched funding for large-scale GHG reduction projects.
