CAC supports Ontario government’s commitment to new alternative fuel regulations

World Cement,

The Cement Association of Canada has announced its support of the government of Ontario’s renewed commitment to developing “new alternative fuel rules in 2014 to help big, energy-intensive industries reduce their GHG emissions.” This forms part of the government’s plan for ‘Moving Forward on Climate Change’ and of Premier Kathleen Wynne’s mandate letter to Glen Murray, Environment and Climate Change Minister.

The CAC notes that: ‘Bringing Ontario’s regulatory framework for alternative fuels in line with leading practices globally will help provide the certainty needed to support significant investments in Ontario’s plants, bridge the gap with Europe and other jurisdictions (where fuel substitution rates are over ten times higher than in Ontario), and make a significant contribution to Ontario’s GHG reductions goal.’

“Premier Wynne’s government is demonstrating leadership on climate change, promoting solutions that are good for both the environment and the economy,” commented Michael McSweeney, CAC President and CEO. “We look forward to working with Minister Murray and the environmental community to continue our industry’s progress on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollutants.”
