Canada sets carbon emissions reduction target of 30% by 2030

Canada has announced it will commit to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030, an ambitious target made possible in large part by the success of the provinces in reducing their own emissions.

The announcement was made today in Winnipeg by Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq.


Canada is responsible for 1.48% of the world’s Co2 emissions.
