Bank of England Visit

Governments need integrated climate and energy policies to deal with the impact of greenhouse gases, according to Bank of England governor Mark Carney.

Carney, the former governor of the Bank of Canada, was at the Alberta legislature on Monday to meet with Premier Rachel Notley.

He is in Edmonton to receive an honorary doctor of laws from the University of Alberta on Tuesday.

Carney declined to rate Alberta's climate change policy, when asked about it at a joint news conference with Notley.

"It's not part of my job description but I'll just note that the two work together in a reinforcing fashion, and in a way that uses the market to achieve results, " he told reporters.

Last fall, Carney spoke about climate change being the "tragedy of the horizon."

He told a dinner sponsored by Lloyd's of London that having companies disclose the carbon footprints of their businesses could help in the fight against climate change, because it could be taken into account in decision-making.
