Actions to reduce emissions


Making Canada’s building sector more energy efficient is a cost-effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save households and businesses money.


Building a smart, integrated clean electricity system will deliver reliable and affordable power, where it is needed.

Forestry, agriculture and waste

Canada’s forests, wetlands, and croplands can absorb and store atmospheric carbon. Repurposing wastes as fuel, where possible, can also reduce emissions.


Canada’s industries are the backbone of our economy, but are also a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. The right investments today can make dramatic changes to reduce emissions and increase sustainability.

Short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs)

Canada’s plan for addressing short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) will help meet climate goals and improve air quality.


With smart and strategic investments in transportation, we will not only grow a cleaner economy and create good jobs, we will improve our quality of life.
