Reuters exclusively reports Canada’s clean energy lobby groups call for changes to draft Clean Fuel Standard

Reuters exclusively reported that one of Canada’s flagship pieces of climate regulation has run into criticism from clean fuel lobby groups as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau prepares to start his third term in office, with industry advocates arguing it is out of step with Canada’s goals to achieve net-zero emissions. The Clean Fuel Standard is set to come into force in December 2022 and was envisaged as a pillar of Canada’s carbon emissions reduction plan. But a coalition of 26 clean fuel trade associations, producers and climate think tanks are now warning that the regulation in its current form will delay rather than incentivize the adoption of low-carbon fuels.
