Policy Recommendation


Operational Regulations and Incentives

Regulations such as building codes, emissions targets, waste management practices, etc. can be used to protect the environment, reduce greenhouse gasses, and encourage greater environmental awareness within industries. Incentives, such as targeted tax rebates, subsidies, and rewards for the use of local products and services, can do the same while supporting the growth of local green industry.

  • Action Recommended:
    Newfoundland and Labrador to conduct a cross-jurisdictional scan to identify regulatory and incentive frameworks used elsewhere which serve to (1) protect, mitigate damage to, or enhance the natural environment; and/or (2) support the growth of the local green economy.

  • Action Recommended:
    Newfoundland and Labrador to implement appropriate environmental regulations and incentives.
