Ontario is supporting industries to reduce greenhouse gas pollution from their facilities or manufacturing processes through a new program from the Green Ontario Fund, a non-profit provincial agency funded by proceeds from the province’s carbon market.

Chris Ballard, Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, was joined today by Reza Moridi, Minister of Research, Innovation and Science, and Parminder Sandhu, Green Ontario Fund board chair, to announce the launch of GreenON Industries and the successful applicants for TargetGHG, a similar industry-focused program.

GreenON Industries will provide funding for eligible projects that reduce greenhouse gas pollution in buildings and the production of goods by large emitters and other industrial, commercial and institutional facilities. Projects could involve switching to less carbon intensive fuels, redirecting harmful carbon dioxide emissions back into production processes, upgrading energy inefficient production equipment and introducing production processes that require fewer energy resources.
