Since the past decade, there have been various options of policies proposed for limiting the emissions from greenhouse gases from activities in industrial sectors in Canada. The industry of oil and gas in Canada has currently negotiated with several government provinces at the federal level over newly defined regulations that required being rolled out at the national level. Particular proposals have emerged finally to define the emission of greenhouse gas reduction aims and to regulate the prices of these regulations nationally (Horne et al, 2013). In the year 2002, a comprehensive strategy on climate change was completed by Alberta in which action commitments were outlined inclusive of industrial emitter regulation. In the year 2003, the reaffirmation of the actions commitment in Alberta was done through passing an act known as Climate Change and emissions management which led towards mandatory reporting program development (Leach, 2012). The main aim of this act was to make sure that all the facilities in Alberta that emit more than 100,000 CO2 in metric tons will have to submit a report on their greenhouse gas emissions annually.
This is a policy analysis paper explaining different policy factors and implications with regard to a specifically chosen policy. The main purpose of this paper is to analyze the policy of Alberta’s Specified Gas Emitters Regulation.
