The Climate Change Secretariat is responsible for the development, coordination, and delivery of Nunavut’s energy strategy to address our dependence on imported fuels. The Secretariat monitors energy-related issues, develops and delivers energy-related programs and services, and e coordinates action on energy decisions.
The Climate Change Secretariat is also responsible for energy and climate change mitigation awareness. This work is aimed at increasing adoption of energy conservation practices, reducing energy waste, improving understanding of energy use, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The goal is to foster a “conservation ethic” among Nunavummiut that builds on traditional IQ principles and leads to measurable reductions in Nunavut’s energy consumption, energy costs, and Nunavut’s continued reliance on fossil fuels.
