Government Action

Climate Change is a shared responsibility, with your provincial government leading action using the New Brunswick Climate Change Action Plan as its roadmap.


What New Brunswick is Doing

  • New Brunswick is leading the country in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and is well on its way to meeting the national target of 40-45 per cent below 2005 levels.
  • Fifty-six municipalities, three Regional Service Commissions, and three First Nation communities have completed their climate change vulnerability assessment and adaptation plans.
  • Fifty-one communities have developed greenhouse gas reduction plans.
  • Investments from the provincial government’s energy efficiency programs and other funds have contributed to a greenhouse gas reduction of more than 43,000 tonnes from government-owned buildings. Twenty-eight sites have converted to lower emission fuels, such as natural gas, propane, or biomass.
  • More than 800 government-owned buildings including schools, health-care facilities, garages, and offices have been entered and maintained in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager.
