This report provides a detailed evaluation of Alberta's current regulations and financial incentives to reduce greenhouse gas pollution, and identifies key opportunities for the Government of Alberta to strengthen its approach to climate change.

In the most comprehensive assessment of Alberta’s climate change policies to date, Responsible Action? concludes that Alberta’s current approach will deliver less than one third of the greenhouse gas reductions the Government of Alberta has committed to; the report also indicates that strengthening current policies could enable the province to meet its climate targets.
