G23-P001 Federal regulation and oversight of carbon offsets and credits
BE IT RESOLVED that the Green Party of Canada fundamentally challenges the use of carbon offsets as federal policy unless it can be verified scientifically and audited on a case-by-case basis that additional and permanent GHG reductions are achieved that have not already been claimed by another entity and are not associated with significant social or environmental harms.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Party supports bringing the sale of all carbon offsets and credits nationwide under federal regulation and oversight.
Submitter: Cardigan EDA
Sponsors: Lisa Barrett, Jocelyn Gifford, Cate Root, Tyler Beaulac, Evelyn Tanaka
