Principles for Climate Change Policy Design

Principles for Climate Change Policy Design

Climate change is a global issue that requires a global solution. The Mining Association of Canada and its members offer the following principles for consideration:

  1. Establish a broad-based carbon price
  2. Apply any climate change policy-related revenues to manage the transition toward a lower carbon future, including climate adaptation
  3. Address competitiveness and carbon leakage concerns across all sectors
  4. Be predictable, flexible and sensitive to changing conditions
  5. Be simple, complementary and effective
  6. Support lower-emission generation technology development and implementation
  7. Recognize early action
