BC Energy/GHG Policy
B.C., through the 2007 Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets Act has committed all public-sector organizations to being carbon neutral by 2010 and is supporting this initiative with their Public Sector Energy Conservation Agreement (PSECA). Created as a partnership between BC Hydro and the Government of B.C. this agreement has helped public sector organizations in the province achieve annual energy cost savings of close to $7.4 million, GHG reductions of over 18,700 tonnes and conservation of 38.6 Gigawatt Hours (GWh) of electricity since its inception.

Government Policy
Quebec aims to reduce their GHG emissions to 20% below 1990 levels by 2020 with the guidance of their Sustainability Development Act and the 2006–2012 Climate Change Action Plan. The establishment of the Sustainability Development Act has allowed the province to legally establish an accountability framework for sustainable development through which individual efforts can be channeled, contributing to the province's climate change goals. Already completing the fourth year of their plan, Quebec has committed more than $ 660 million for over 1200 projects under the 19 programs found throughout the Action Plan. The results of this action so far has been a reduction of almost 1% of Quebec's GHG emission from 1990 to 2008.
