Provincial Greenhouse Gas Inventory

In 2014, British Columbia’s greenhouse gas emissions were 62.7 million carbon dioxide equivalent tonnes (Mt CO2e), including 1.8 Mt CO2e in offsets from forest management projects. Greenhouse gas emissions were down 5.5% from 66.3 Mt CO2e in 2007, our baseline year.

British Columbia’s Provincial Inventory is the province’s assessment of greenhouse gas sources and sinks in British Columbia. The inventory tables cover all GHG emissions included in the province’s greenhouse gas targets. The tables also include emissions or removals from land use change and forest management. These are not included in the province’s greenhouse gas targets, but are reported for additional information.

The Climate Action Secretariat prepares British Columbia’s greenhouse gas inventory and publishes the inventory tables each year, with a two-year delay to allow time to assemble the information. The 2014 provincial inventory (XLSX, 71 KB) was published in 2016.
