Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Large Facilities
In 2013, over one third (36%) of Canada's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions came from 565 facilities. The total emissions reported by those facilities was 261 megatonnes (Mt) of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2 eq).
Greenhouse gas emissions from facilities, Canada, 2013
The map of Canada displays the 2013 greenhouse gas emissions from 565 facilities across Canada (excluding pipeline transportation systems). Facilities are represented as dots that are colour-coded according to six classes of emissions ranging from below 50 to over 2000 kilotonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent.

The data for this indicator are collected under the federal Facility GHG Emissions Reporting Program (GHGRP), to which all facilities that emit 50 000 tonnes of CO2 eq of GHGs or more per year are required to submit their emissions.
Unlike Canada's National Inventory Report 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 industrial and other types of facilities emitting the largest amounts of GHGs in Canada.
