Alberta’s TIER system requires facilities with emissions >100kt CO2e/year to reduce their emissions intensities (EI) annually, and awards facilities with reductions tradable credits. Facilities that are unable to reduce their EI must pay the carbon tax on excess emissions but may retire eligible carbon offsets or carbon credits to reduce this amount.
