Some Interesting Facts & Emissions Targets

Under the Kyoto Protocol, an international agreement to reduce global warming linked to emissions of greenhouse gases, Canada committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by six per cent below 1990 levels by the five-year commitment period of 2008 to 2012.

The Kyoto Protocol identified six greenhouse gases — carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6).

Note: Under the Harper government Canada pulled out of the Kyoto Protocol in 2011 to avoid paying penalties for failing to reach it’s commitments.

Under the Copenhagen Accord, the 2009 successor to the Kyoto Protocol, Canada has committed to reducing emissions to 17 per cent below 2005 levels by the year 2020.

Households are responsible for 329 megatonnes or 45 per cent of Canada’s total emissions of greenhouse gases. Statistics Canada, Report on Human Activity and the Environment.

The household emissions include those generated directly through the use of heat, electricity and vehicles, and indirectly through the production of goods and services purchased by households.

Household emissions typically include: carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O).
