Quebec’s HFC prohibition dates called untimely

Proposed revisions to Quebec's halocarbon regulation could sideline some commonly used refrigerants before alternatives with lower global warming potential can feasibly be in place.

Commercial buildings stuck at GHG status quo

Canadian commercial buildings registered the same 40-megatonne output of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2016 as in 2005.
high-GWP anesthetic gases

Facility Cleaning & Maintenance

Little oversight of high-GWP anesthetic gases

Anesthetics commonly used in medical, dental and veterinary surgery have global warming potential ranging from 130 to 2,540 times greater than carbon dioxide, but are largely overlooked when greenhouse gas emissions are officially tallied.

Alberta hits the trifecta for GHG emissions

Differing populations, economic drivers and sources of electricity generation are easily discernible in the provincial/territorial breakdown of GHG emissions statistics.
