Your Footprint - Average Canadian
According to Canada’s One-Tonne Challenge, every Canadian produces at least five tonnes of greenhouse gases directly each year.
According to Environment Canada’s Greenhouse Gas Inventory, Canada produces a total of 747 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2eq) annually. This includes those industrial emissions not incorporated into the direct emissions above. If we were to average this number across Canada’s total population, that would mean that each Canadian produces approximately 24 tonnes of greenhouse gases every year.
