Government of Canada’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory The Government of Canada tracks its energy use and its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across 15 departments and agencies as part of the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy. In the future, we will gather and share information from other federal organizations and other federal sources of GHG emissions. We have a good picture of the government’s GHG emissions from the 2010 to 2011 fiscal year to the 2014 to 2015 fiscal year. We are currently working on gathering information on the government’s GHG emissions for the 2015 to 2016 and 2016 to 2017 fiscal years. As part of the national effort to combat climate change, the Government of Canada has committed to reducing its GHG emissions by 40% by 2030, or earlier. The baseline year is 2005, against which every other year is compared to see what progress is being made. Information on federal GHG emissions up to the 2014 to 2015 fiscal year is now available as a dataset. Sources of the Government of Canada’s GHG emissions are the energy used for its buildings (89%) and its fleet (11%): * buildings comprise office space, laboratories and warehouses * fleets comprise on-road vehicles and off-road fleets, including cars, vans, trucks, boats, ships and planes Some GHG emissions are excluded from the Government of Canada’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory for safety and security reasons. One example is fuel used in military operations. 2017-07-18 2017-12-07 Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat Greening-Vert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Economics and IndustryGovernment and PoliticsNature and EnvironmentSociety and CultureScience and TechnologyTransportgreenhouse gasemissionsGHGenergyfederalclimateenvironmentgreeninglow-carboncarbon footprintbuildingsfleets Item 1 - Energy Use and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Related to Federal Facilities and FleetsCSV https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/tbs-sct/images/innovation/ghg01-eng.csv Item 1 - Energy Use and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Related to Federal Facilities and FleetsCSV https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/tbs-sct/images/innovation/ghg01-fra.csv Item 2 - Energy Use and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Related to Federal FacilitiesCSV https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/tbs-sct/images/innovation/ghg02-eng.csv Item 2 - Energy Use and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Related to Federal FacilitiesCSV https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/tbs-sct/images/innovation/ghg02-fra.csv Item 3 - Fuel Use and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Related to Federal FleetsCSV https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/tbs-sct/images/innovation/ghg03-eng.csv Item 3 - Fuel Use and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Related to Federal FleetsCSV https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/tbs-sct/images/innovation/ghg03-fra.csv Item 4 - Data Dictionary for the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory DatasetsHTML https://www.canada.ca/fr/secretariat-conseil-tresor/services/innovation/ecologiser-gouvernement/inventaire-emissions-gas-effet-serre-gouvernement-canada/dictionnaire-donnees.html Item 4 - Data Dictionary for the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory DatasetsHTML https://www.canada.ca/en/treasury-board-secretariat/services/innovation/greening-government/government-canada-greenhouse-gas-emissions-inventory/data-dictionary.html

Government of Canada’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory

The Government of Canada tracks its energy use and its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across 15 departments and agencies as part of the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy. In the future, we will gather and share information from other federal organizations and other federal sources of GHG emissions.

We have a good picture of the government’s GHG emissions from the 2010 to 2011 fiscal year to the 2014 to 2015 fiscal year. We are currently working on gathering information on the government’s GHG emissions for the 2015 to 2016 and 2016 to 2017 fiscal years.

As part of the national effort to combat climate change, the Government of Canada has committed to reducing its GHG emissions by 40% by 2030, or earlier. The baseline year is 2005, against which every other year is compared to see what progress is being made. Information on federal GHG emissions up to the 2014 to 2015 fiscal year is now available as a dataset.

Sources of the Government of Canada’s GHG emissions are the energy used for its buildings (89%) and its fleet (11%):

  • buildings comprise office space, laboratories and warehouses

  • fleets comprise on-road vehicles and off-road fleets, including cars, vans, trucks, boats, ships and planes

Some GHG emissions are excluded from the Government of Canada’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory for safety and security reasons. One example is fuel used in military operations.
