Emissions Reduction Fund: working together to create a lower carbon future
Canada is striving to meet its environmental commitments, rebuild the economy, and create a lower carbon economy.
Reducing methane and other greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions in the oil and gas sector is an important part of getting there.
By working together with industry, through the $750M Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF), we can do it.
The ERF will help onshore and offshore oil and gas companies by providing funds to invest in green solutions to reduce GHGs and retain jobs in the sector.
