2030 Plan for Green Economy: The government is releasing the 2030 Plan for a Green Economy, signalling the start of an ambitious project to electrify the economy and fight climate change. Thereby, it lays the foundations of a green and prosperous economy by 2030. With the 2030 Plan for a Green Economy, the government is charting a roadmap for the next 10 years. It is also reiterating its target for 2030: to reduce Québec’s greenhouse gas emissions by 37.5% below 1990 levels by 2030. Achieving this target will require substantial effort from everyone. However, it will also offer new opportunities to improve Quebecers’ lives and enrich Québec as a whole

The Québec government has released its energy policy for 2030, L'énergie des Québécois — Source de croissance, a policy that puts the consumer at the centre of future actions
