Canada’s 2030 climate goals challenging to achieve, says budgetary watchdog

CALGARY, Alberta, June 23 (Reuters) – Canada faces a challenge hitting its 2030 target to cut carbon emissions 40-45% below 2005 levels because of the speed and scale of changes needed to decarbonize the economy, the country’s independent budgetary watchdog said on Wednesday.

The assessment from Yves Giroux, the parliamentary budget officer (PBO), underlines the difficulties facing Canada, a vast, cold country that is the world’s fourth-largest oil producer, as it seeks to slash emissions within a decade.
