Canada: Industry claims climate high ground
Wednesday 29 Aug 2018
The pulp and paper sector began showing signs of success in reducing greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the 1990s. Throughout the 2000s, some 30 facilities across the country were upgrading their energy systems to produce green electricity from biomass.
Today, enough electricity is produced across the Canadian forest products sector to power the city of Vancouver for an entire year. Over the course of this transformation, the sector has cut its GHGs by approximately 67 per cent.
The industry has continued to gain momentum by advancing its clean energy agenda with a total investment of more than $2 billion in innovation development.
