  • Articles and reports: 16-508-X2019004
    Description:

    This article presents emissions estimates related to spending on food and beverage products and services. These estimates are based on an input-output model that combines physical flow data on greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by industry with economic data on production and consumption of goods and services.

  • Articles and reports: 11-626-X2019008
    Description:

    This article in the Economic Insights series examines how accounting for greenhouse gas emissions as part of economic activity changes the measurement of productivity growth.

  • Articles and reports: 11F0019M2019013
    Description:

    The need to measure both the desirable outputs (goods and services) and the undesirable outputs (emissions of greenhouse gases [GHGs] and criteria air contaminants [CACs]) from economic activity is becoming increasingly important as economic performance and environmental performance become ever more intertwined. Standard measures of multifactor productivity (MFP) growth provide insights into rising standards of living and the performance of economies, but they may be misleading if only desirable outputs are considered. This study presents estimates of environmentally adjusted multifactor productivity (EAMFP) growth using a new comprehensive database. This database contains information on GHG and CAC emissions, as well as on the production activities of Canadian manufacturers.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Although the location of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is not important as far as their contribution to global warming is concerned, it can be useful to know how final domestic expenditures on products and services in Canada cause emissions in other countries and conversely, how final expenditures elsewhere cause emissions in Canada. This article uses a novel multi-regional input-output (MRIO) model to trace the connections between domestic final expenditures on goods and services in one country and the resulting GHG emissions in another.

  • Articles and reports: 16-001-M2010012
    Description:

    The paper examines the contribution of the household sector to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Canada, through its use of private motor vehicles. Emissions estimates are presented at national, provincial and census metropolitan area (CMA) levels. The study uses data from the Canadian Vehicle Survey (CVS), conducted by Statistics Canada's Transportation Division and the Material and Energy Flow Accounts (MEFA) from Environment Accounts and Energy Statistics Division (EASD).

    At the national level the study presents estimates of vehicle emissions, GHG intensity, as well as per capita emissions. Total and per capita emissions by income group are also presented at the national level. At the provincial and CMA levels, the study presents the first survey based estimates of total and per capita vehicle emissions. It also explores the regional differences and examines the contributing factors.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Households contribute to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Canada both directly and indirectly. Direct emissions occur through the use of motor fuel and residential fuel, while indirect emissions result from the production of goods and services purchased by households. This article examines households' direct and indirect GHG emissions from 1990 to 2004.

  • Articles and reports: 16-201-X200700010542
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The article "Climate Change in Canada" begins with an explanation of the science necessary to explore this topic. It continues to examine greenhouse gas emissions in Canada, investigating the driving forces behind those emissions and how those forces may have changed over time. It illustrates some of the impacts of climate change on our land, wildlife and peoples. The article concludes with a presentation of the activities that Canadians, industry and governments are undertaking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to the changing climate, and also profiles some promising areas for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the future.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This article provides an analysis of greenhouse gas emissions from a demand perspective. The analysis is based on the greenhouse gas emissions accounts and input-output accounts produced at Statistics Canada. It shows that domestic requirements for goods and services led to 54% of Canadian industrial emissions, while production to satisfy exports accounted for the remaining 46%. Between 1990 and 2002, emissions associated with domestic demand grew slowly at 0.4% while those associated with the production of goods for export grew by 50%.

    Description:

    This paper evaluates Canadian industry performance in adopting and developing greenhouse gas (GHG) technologies. It addresses issues concerning business investments in GHG technologies, domestic and international market access for Canadian GHG technology producers, and the process of innovation for GHG technology development. The analysis is based on the results of the 2002 Survey of Environmental Protection Expenditures (SEPE) and the 2002 Environment Industry Survey (EIS).

    Description:

    This annual report presents environmental indicators for water quality, air quality, and greenhouse gas emissions. The water quality indicator documents the distribution of water quality at selected sites across Canada. The air quality indicator reports national and regional trends in ground-level ozone, a key component of smog, and fine particulate matter (PM2.5). The greenhouse gas indicator describes the trend in emissions and the contribution to the trend by energy production, energy consumption and other factors. The socio-economic context provides links to economic performance and social progress. The indicators are intended to assist those in government responsible for developing policy and measuring performance, while also helping individual Canadians who want to know more about the trends in their environment.

    The indicator reports from 2005 to 2007 can be found below. All later indicator reports can be found on Environment Canada's site: www.ec.gc.ca/indicateurs-indicators/.

    Description:

    This annual report provides a summary of the key findings from Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators. It presents a synopsis for each of the environmental indicators: water quality, air quality, and greenhouse gas emissions. The report provides answers to the following questions for each of the three indicators: What is the issue? What is happening? What does it mean? Why is it happening? The indicators are intended to assist those in government responsible for developing policy and measuring performance, while also helping individual Canadians who want to know more about the trends in their environment.
