27% – That’s the percentage of Canada’s total greenhouse gas emissions contributed by the transportation sector. Transportation is the second largest source of GHG emissions. From 1990 to 2005, transportation’s GHG emissions grew by 33%, from 150 megatonnes (Mt) to 200 Mt. The transportation sector emits in excess of 70 kilograms (kg) of CO2 per gigajoule of energy compared to the average 58 kg emitted across all sectors, reflecting transportation’s reliance on traditional fossil fuels such as diesel.
