EMC and Canada’s national clean fuel associations forecast 50Mt of GHG reductions by 2030

On September 5, 2019, EMC and Canada’s other national clean fuels associations issued a joint call for a national ‘Clean Fuel Strategy’ to meet Canada’s greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals.

Based on a study by Navius Research, the associations forecast GHG emissions reductions of over 50 million tonnes (Mt) per year by 2030 through greater production and use of renewable energy in Canada, including 16Mt of GHG reductions through the electrification of light, medium, and heavy-duty vehicles, including buses. These reductions exceeds the proposed federal Clean Fuel Standard’s objective of 30 Mt of annual GHG emission reductions by 2030.
