Total carbon emissions in the GTHA increased 5.2% in 2018, reaching 55.5 Mt. This report is a stark reality check, showing that since the completion of the coal phase out, emissions are slowly increasing across all regions and nearly all sources. Our per capita natural gas emissions are increasing even when adjusted for population growth and weather. This one-of-a-kind comprehensive inventory uses consistent methodology, data sources, and time frames across all six GTHA municipalities to create a regional picture with municipal-level detail.
