2030 Emissions Reduction Plan: Clean Air, Strong Economy
Canadians have been clear about what they want: clean air and good jobs, a healthy environment and a strong economy.
Building on the actions of millions of Canadians, the Government of Canada is taking bold and immediate action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to fight climate change, while strengthening our economy with sustainable jobs and clean industrial growth.
The 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan is an ambitious and achievable roadmap that outlines a sector-by-sector path for Canada to reach its emissions reduction target of 40 percent below 2005 levels by 2030 and net-zero emissions by 2050.
The Plan reflects input from over 30,000 Canadians, provinces and territories, Indigenous Peoples, industry and the independent Net-Zero Advisory Body.
If there’s one thing to know about Canadians.
It’s that when we work together, we can accomplish incredible things.
Climate change is the biggest challenge facing humanity today And Canadians have what it takes to meet the moment.
What we do next is critical.
The Emissions Reduction Plan is Canada’s roadmap to meet its achievable greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets.
The Government of Canada is harnessing the ingenuity and the will of Canadians all across the country… not just to fight climate change, but to create sustainable jobs and build a strong economy for the future.
Sector-by-sector, Canada’s plan sets out the actions needed to cut pollution.
Electric vehicles, renewable power, clean technologies.
New businesses and good, long-lasting jobs to meet the global demand for sustainable goods and services.
Building a clean environment and a bright future for our kids and grandkids.
Thousands of Canadians helped shape this plan.
People of all ages Indigenous Peoples Businesses Communities And all levels of government This is your plan.
And this is the Government of Canada’s commitment to you: To fight climate change, to create good jobs, and to build a strong, vibrant future for everyone.
What we’re doing
Looking to 2030
The graph below shows the latest projections for how Canada’s emissions will decline by 2030, broken down by sector.*
LULUCF = Land-Use, Land Use Change and Forestry. NBCS = Nature-Based Climate Solutions.
Note: Totals may not add up due to rounding.
|LULUCF, NBCS and Agriculture (removal)||-8||-10||-11||-11||-10||-12|
|LULUCF, NBCS and Agriculture (emissions)||73||72||73||73||73||73|
|Oil and gas||191||179||182||181||177||173|
|LULUCF, NBCS and Agriculture (removal)||-14||-16||-19||-22||-26||-30|
|LULUCF, NBCS and Agriculture (emissions)||73||73||73||72||72||71|
|Oil and gas||170||163||154||144||128||110|
*These projections are based on today’s understanding of the potential for each sector to reduce emissions up to 2030. The exact areas for emissions-reduction potential may shift in the future as Canada decarbonizes.
