The Emission Offsets Regulation under the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets Act received royal assent on December 3, 2008. This regulation sets out the details of offset creation for the purposes of fulfilling the provincial government's goal of a carbon-neutral public sector by 2010. GHG reductions must be supported by a verified project report; ownership must have passed to the Pacific Carbon Trust; and the reductions must not have been previously recognized by another GHG reduction program.
