EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says her government hopes to release substantial parts of its climate-change policy about one week before she leaves for a global conference in Paris.

The United Nations summit on climate change is to take place in the French capital from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11.

The meeting is aimed at negotiating targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions beyond 2020.

Notley says she would like to announce a fair amount of detail about the province's plan, but the policy will not be entirely complete or ready to implement.

She says it will include significant changes that will put Alberta on what she calls a progressive and balanced path forward.

Notley says her government will do what it can do to improve the province's environmental record, while still allowing the energy industry to prosper.
