Carbon Neutral by the End of 2018 

In 2014, the transportation sector was the source of 23% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Canada. It is second only to the oil and gas sector as the largest source of GHG emissions in Canada. Transportation emissions are widely distributed as they originate from millions of independent sources, for example each vehicle’s tailpipe. GHGs that are produced by the combustion of petroleum fuels consist predominantly of carbon dioxide and smaller amounts of nitrous oxide.
