Provincial Greenhouse Gas Inventory
In 2015, B.C.'s greenhouse gas emissions were 61.6 million carbon dioxide equivalent tonnes (Mt CO2e), including 1.7 Mt CO2e in offsets from forest management projects in B.C. Greenhouse gas emissions are down 4.7% from 64.7 Mt CO2e in 2007, our baseline year.
B.C.'s provincial inventory covers all of the emissions included in the province’s greenhouse gas targets. Emissions from changes in land use and forest management are included in the inventory for information purposes only.
The Climate Action Secretariat prepares and publishes B.C.'s provincial greenhouse gas inventory on a two-year delay due to the time required to assemble and analyze information from the federal government and emissions sources in B.C. The 2015 provincial inventory (XLSX, 83 KB) was published in fall 2017.
