Canada’s Emission Projections in 2020 and 2030 (Mt CO2 eq)

Canada’s Emission Projections in 2020 and 2030

Long description

The figure shows that Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions projections under a “with current measures” scenario are projected to be 768 megatonnes (Mt) CO2 eq in 2020 and 815 Mt CO2 eq in 2030. It also shows the expected range of the same projections under different economic and energy price and production scenarios. For 2020, the expected range of emissions could be between 749 Mt and 790 Mt. For 2030, the expected range of emissions could be between 765 Mt and 875 Mt. It must be noted that these projections do not include contributions for the land use, land-use change and forestry sector (LULUCF), as analysis of alternative accounting approaches remains ongoing.

The figure also shows Canada’s 2020 greenhouse gas emissions target (622 Mt)  and Canada’s 2030 target (524 Mt).
