Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction System

Government has passed legislation to put the new Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction (TIER) system in motion.

Services and information

Information for industry on Alberta’s approach to reduce emissions from large industrial emitters.

Information for the conventional oil and gas industry on opting in to the TIER regulation.

The Emission Offset System enables compliance flexibility for facilities regulated under TIER.


Bill 19, the Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction Implementation Act, paves the way for the new TIER system. TIER is an improved system to help industrial facilities find innovative ways to reduce emissions and invest in clean technology to stay competitive and save money.

TIER is a unique solution that allows the province to reduce emissions without interference from Ottawa. TIER also builds on Alberta’s 20-year record of taking action to manage emissions.


Government engaged with stakeholders and Albertans throughout the summer on the proposed TIER system to make sure it’s designed to meet the needs of Alberta’s environment and economy.
