Greenhouse gas emissions

Greenhouse gas emissions

We are continuing to meet our annual greenhouse gas reduction targets which track how we are progressing toward our long-term target of emissions no greater than 40 per cent of 1990 levels by 2050. We are also continuing to achieve the target of 33.3 per cent renewable energy from self-generated renewable energy sources.

How we are reducing our emissions

Our emissions reductions initiatives include:

  • energy efficiency measures
  • increasing renewable energy generation and storage, including from solar photovoltaic panels, hydro-electric plants and biogas combustion
  • carbon sequestered through our bio-sequestration plantings.

We are also exploring opportunities to participate in the Emissions Reduction Fund administered by the Clean Energy Regulator through opportunities for biodiverse carbon plantings and energy management.
