6 Modelling by Navius Research, which examined the effect a climate leadership policy scenario (similar to what the Climate Leadership Team recommended) would have on employment in B.C.’s traditional resource sectors found job growth through to 2050 comparable to what the province would see without new climate action (see Figure 5). Figure 4: More than 14,000 people work in clean energy generation across British Columbia. That number is expected to grow if the province takes new action to reach its climate targets and promote clean energy generation. Figure 5: B.C. would continue to see job growth in traditional resource sectors between now and 2050 in a scenario where the province took new climate action.
