Daniels Carbon Congratulates Ontario for True Leadership on Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 17, 2014) - Daniels Carbon today congratulated the Ontario Government for its demonstration of leadership in addressing climate change and its commitment to meeting aggressive targets.

Last week, Ontario announced that it is joining the Compact of States and Regions, which commits international partners to publicly reporting on greenhouse gas emissions every year. The announcement was made during the Lima Climate Change Conference convened by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

"This announcement is a testament to a strong, and progressive policy direction," said Trevor Ducharme, Managing Director of Daniels Carbon. "Ontario already has the skills, knowledge and capacity to be a leader in finding solutions to climate change; we are so proud to work in a province that is truly setting the stage."

Daniels Carbon is an Ontario-based carbon management firm, specializing in emission trading, offsets and carbon reduction strategies. "We are encouraged by this momentum, including the recent announcement by the Ontario government to start exploring market-based mechanisms to reduce carbon, similar to what is already being done in Quebec and California through the Western Climate Initiative (WCI)."

In November, Quebec penned a memorandum of understanding with Ontario that would see the two provinces harmonize efforts to fight climate change with the possibility of forming a common market.

Daniels Carbon is at the forefront of the Canadian movement to ensure that large polluters are taxed for their emissions and offered an opportunity to buy carbon offsets as they strive to lower their own emissions.

"A carbon tax will have an overall net benefit to Canadians and offers opportunities for environmentally-conscious businesses to benefit from their good practices. All of these government led initiatives remind us that meaningful progress goes well beyond the steps of a single province or country. It is about collaboration."

Ontario will also host the 2015 Climate Summit of the Americas in Toronto July 7-9, 2015.
