WCS Canada Comments on Yukon's Clean Energy Act January 2022

WCS Canada


Abstract

WCS Canada scientists have been working in Yukon since 2004 on land use and protected areas planning, land and water management, wildlife conservation research, and policy applications for conservation science. The Government of Yukon is committed to reducing the Yukon’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, with the exception of mining emissions, by 45 per cent by 2030, reaching net-zero emissions across the Yukon’s entire economy by 2050. These are our comments on the proposed Clean Energy Act in Yukon.
