ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the efforts of companies and industries in Canada to reduce the country's greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). According to the Federal Government of Canada the country's 315 large industrial facilities have reduced their overall emissions by 2.4% from 2005 to 2006. It claims that this is a fair achievement for the country but is not impressive given the fact that the decrease resulted from substituting coal for hydro, regular maintenance, and electricity demand reduction. It says that it is in the area of tar sands where the country should focus its attention.
