    Description:

    In society today, many Canadians are concerned about the environment and the scarcity of resources. Consequently, many individuals and governments are seeking ways to reduce or alter energy and water consumption patterns. This article uses data from the 2007 Households and the Environment Survey to examine the association between income, education, ownership, age of dwelling and years lived at the dwelling and the use of low-volume toilets; low-flow showerheads; compact fluorescent light bulbs; programmable thermostats; and appliances bought to save energy or water.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Using the Survey of Household Facilities and Equipment and the Survey of Household Spending, this article shows that, since the 1940s, Canadians have rapidly adopted new energy sources for household heating. It then shows how these important changes have affected greenhouse gas emissions attributable to the residential sector in recent decades.

    Description:

    In the context of the progressive depletion of the world's fossil fuel reserves, energy research and development (R&D) is turning towards renewable resources. This article shows a rise during the period 2000 to 2002, compared with the period 1994 to 1996, in the share of R&D dedicated to energy "alternatives", and in particular to renewable energy resources. Between the same periods, expenditures for "traditional" types of energy R&D have fallen.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Businesses today are involved in a variety of practices aimed at preventing or reducing environmental degradation generated from their production activity. During the 1990s, the environmental regulation context changed. Increasingly, governments have relied on voluntary initiatives undertaken by businesses to reduce pollutants and waste, as opposed to regulations. However, at the same time, the federal authorities have undertaken to revise the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA), in order to increase federal power for environmental regulation but with strong emphasis put on promoting pollution prevention. Consequently, businesses today are looking at alternative ways to limit impacts from their operations on the environment.

    Environmental Management and Technologies in the Business Sector presents a profile of business demand for environmental processes and technologies, pollution prevention methods and environmental practices, such as environmental management systems and voluntary actions. What types of treatment processes are the most popular ones for reducing gas emissions, liquid, solid and hazardous waste, noise, radiation and vibration, for saving energy or for site reclamation? What is the market for environmental processes and technologies? What pollution prevention methods are used more frequently? What additional environmental practices have businesses adopted (for instance, are voluntary programs more popular than eco-labelling?)?

    This paper is based on results from the Survey of Environmental Protection Expenditures. For the first time, the survey asked detailed questions on the type of environmental process or technology used and the adoption of environmental practices. The paper is a complement to both 1996-1997 and 1998 Environmental Protection Expenditures in the Business Sector reports (Catalogue no. 16F0006XIE).
