In terms of the environment, Québec primarily seeks to:

  • reduce its greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs)
  • increase its capacity to adapt to the potential impacts of climate change.

Québec is among the world’s economies with the strictest environmental protection standards, with an eye to sustainable development.

A responsible environment

  • Recognized expertise in sectors such as mining, aluminium smelting, agriculture, pulp and paper and hydroelectricity fosters the export of Québec’s know-how and technologies throughout the world.
  • In collaboration with California, Québec created the largest cross-border carbon market in North America. Since the harmonization and full integration of the Québec and California markets on January 1, 2014, many companies have been active in the carbon market, thereby contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
