Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Large Facilities
In 2010, just over one-third (38%) of Canada’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions came from 537 facilities. These facilities reported emitting 262 megatonnes (Mt) of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2 eq).

This data comes from the federal Facility GHG Emissions Reporting Program, under which all facilities that emit 50,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2 eq) of GHGs per year or more are required to submit their emissions.
Unlike Canada’s National Inventory Report (NIR), which compiles GHG emissions data at a national level and is developed from national and provincial statistics, the federal Facility GHG Emissions Reporting Program applies only to the largest GHG emitters in Canada (e.g. industrial and other types of facilities).
