CPA Makes Headway in New Brunswickers’ Response to Climate Change
In August, the CPA submitted a brief to the New Brunswick government as part of the province’s efforts to fight climate change. The brief highlighted climate change solutions that propane can offer New Brunswick for transportation, public infrastructure, back-up energy, and remote and rural communities. The CPA is pleased to announce that in its recommendations, the committee included propane as a mitigation measure. Key highlights included:
- Transportation Emissions – Working with the freight and trucking industry to increase fuel efficiency in commercial trucking and pilot the use of alternative fuels such as propane, natural gas, and bio-diesel; and increasing the uptake of vehicles fuelled by propane.
- Agriculture – Linking financial incentives to the development of farm-management plans that include methane and fertilizer management.
- Clean Technology – Creating growth and jobs in the areas of clean technology and providing access to infrastructure funding.
