  • Stats in brief: 16-508-X2018001
    Description:

    To comply with various environmental rules, businesses invest in processes and technologies that eliminate or reduce pollution before it is created (pollution prevention), or before it is released into the environment (pollution abatement and control). However, the various industries do not all spend at the same rate and do not all use the same techniques. This depends on current regulations and economic growth in the industry. This study draws a portrait of the environmental protection expenditures by the three of the main industries in Canada: oil and gas extraction; petroleum and coal product manufacturing; and electric power generation, transmission and distribution.
