Jeremy Hewitt

Assistant Deputy Minister, BC Climate Action Secretariat

The CleanBC Roadmap to 2030 completely changed the game when it comes to Canadian, and North American, climate action commitments. For example, the Roadmap mandates zero emission vehicles (90% of new sales by 2030), enhances B.C.’s regulatory system to reduce the carbon content of transportation fuels, and cuts emissions by 50% from the natural gas grid. Alongside his team, Jeremy was crucial to the plan’s development. The Roadmap includes over $1.2 billion in funding this year and is the first Climate plan in the province’s history that that charts a credible, verified path to its 2030 legislated greenhouse gas targets.
