Emissions Reduction Fund – Onshore Program
Supporting Canada’s onshore oil and gas sector in reducing methane emissions
The new $675M Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) – Onshore Program is helping Canadian onshore oil and gas companies invest in green solutions to continue their progress toward reducing methane emissions while facing the current economic crisis and COVID-19 pandemic.
We are committed to working together to strengthen the sector’s environmental performance and providing support during this difficult time.
While methane accounts for 43% of the oil and gas sector’s greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions, it’s one of the lowest cost opportunities for the sector to reduce emissions.
Reducing methane is an important issue. It’s the air we breathe.
Let’s work together to transition to a greener future.
