An Audit of Carbon Neutral Government.
 In its 2007 Speech from the Throne, the provincial government announced its goal of becomingcarbon neutral by 2010. In addition to making capital investments and reducing greenhousegases, a significant part of its plan was the purchase of carbon offsets. This audit examined two projects which accounted for nearly 70 percent of the offsets purchasedby government to achieve their claim of carbon neutrality: the Darkwoods Forest Carbon projectin southeastern B.C. and the Encana Underbalanced Drilling project near Fort Nelson. However,this claim of carbon neutrality is not accurate, as neither project provided credible offsets. John Doyle, MAcc, FCAAuditor GeneralVictoria, British ColumbiaMarch 2013
