On December 20, 2010, the Ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement et des Parcs du Québec announced a new regulation on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This new regulation will affect businesses whose GHG emissions exceed 10,000 tonnes of CO2e per year. Additionally, businesses exceeding 25,000 tonnes will have to have their emission declaration verified by an independent auditor.

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton (RCGT) has developed strong expertise in the field and is the first major accounting firm in Quebec to have obtained such verification engagements in the province.

It’s within this context that two of our Firm’s experts, Gérald Daly, Assurance Partner, Montréal. and Roger Fournier, Lead Senior Manager, Environment – Greenhouse Gas, were invited by Les Affaires to speak on April 11 and 12, 2011 at the major conference “Le marché du carbone. Marchés réglementés et marchés volontaires : pour mieux en comprendre les occasions d’affaires, les enjeux et les impacts” (The carbon market. Regulated and voluntary markets: Gaining a better understanding of business opportunities, issues and impacts).
