The Government of BC’s annual Climate Change Accountability Report summarizes where the province has made progress on climate action, and this year significant headway has been made towards BC’s legislated greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets, and how the province is preparing for the impacts of climate change.

Specifically, the report provides progress updates on a wide range of CleanBC programs to reduce emissions, build a cleaner economy, and prepare for the impacts of climate change over the 2021-22 fiscal period. It also provides new data on progress made across sectors like transportation, industry, buildings and communities, and the public service, and confirms that BC is largely projected to meet its 2030 target in line with the Paris Climate Agreement. 

Of significance is the spotlight on the CleanBC Heavy-duty Vehicle Efficiency (HDVE) Program and its progress towards the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. During 2021/22, the driver-training portion of the HDVE program helped reduce diesel consumption by 23.8 million litres, equivalent to 64.9 ktCO2e emissions provincially or removing 13,766 passenger vehicles from North American roads.

BCTA member Hydra Energy was also mentioned as the first company deploying a hydrogen-as-a-service model to support the decarbonization of heavy-duty trucking, including the hydrogen refuelling station being built in Prince George, BC that will supply 24 semi-trucks which have been converted to co-combust hydrogen with conventional diesel.
