An Insider’s Perspective

Reporting Challenges with ECCC’s Output-based Pricing System Regulations: An Insider’s Perspective

Assigning a price on carbon is part of Environment and Climate Change Canada’s (ECCC) strategy to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while stimulating the market’s interest in investing in clean technologies. ECCC posted a document on Friday, December 21st, 2018 to promote discussion on a regulation to support their output –based pricing system (OBPS), with comments due on or before February 15th, 2019.

Motivating action to reduce GHGs and incentivize investment in clean technologies is a valuable two-pronged approach to ensure that Canada can meet or exceed the critical shift needed in our economy and environmental performance. Two of the tools listed in the proposal includes two ISO standards. The proposal currently references ISO 14064-3 (2006) and ISO 14065 (2013), both of which are under revision, with the former expected out by spring.

The new standards are quite different. The content and the timing of these pose a number of challenges that Canadian businesses need to understand. Many organizations that will be required to report or comply with the regulation may be unaware of the pitfalls that lie ahead. It will also be important to understand how these changes may affect the benefits and costs associated with this proposed regulation.

Christine Schuh is one of Canada’s leading negotiators on these standards, and is well respected by government and the private sector. She brings a wealth of expertise and experience on the theory of reporting and the business effects that organizations need to understand. Christine is going to outline the implications for those organizations that need to report and those that will need to rely on this information.

Join us on February 1st at 1 pm (EDT) for this 90-minute webinar to get her insider’s view on challenges with:

  • the differences between the old and new versions of ISO 14064-3, and ISO 14065
  • the timing gap between the regulation and the new versions
  • the challenges for the organizations providing verification and validation of data
  • the cost implications to organizations that need to report or comply with the proposed regulation

Participants will receive a report based on the presentation, polling results of feedback during the webinar and a list of competency requirements that can be used to screen verification companies.

Who should attend this webinar? Anyone who needs to report or comply with the OBPS, or understand the consequences of this proposed regulation.

As we anticipate a full house, we strongly encourage you to send your questions in advance to Questions tabled for clarification during the webinar should be phrased to solicit a yes or no answer, so that we can accommodate them.

Registration is now closed.
