The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) appears to be opposed to most stands of climate change legislation in Canada and beyond. In 2015-2016 CAPP reportedly supported increased export market access for oil sands and LNG, including proposals to build the Energy East pipeline, expand fossil fuel subsidies and invest the money collected from the Alberta emissions charge back into the oil and gas industry. In 2013 CAPP appears to have warned against Ottawa's proposed legislation to introduce to introduce a carbon tax and also advocated against a higher carbon tax levy in Alberta in additional to a higher traded price of carbon. CAPP has also opposed regulations to introduce GHG emissions standards, reportedly being key in undermining a Canadian clean air act and EU Fuel Quality Directive in 2014, which would have prevented exports of Albertan tar sand oil to Europe. The CAPP have also reportedly been involved in questioning the science of climate change, including in materials disseminated to schools and in reference to the the impact of the tar sands. It has also funded numerous grass-root citizen organizations, including Canadian Energy Citizens to promote oil sands and gas.
