Companies have an important role to play in achieving Canada’s climate targets.
Corporate Climate Commitment Tracker
The Corporate Climate Commitment Tracker reviews the climate commitments and progress of the 60 largest companies listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the TSX 60 index).
Canadian Carbon Intensity Database
To help companies, governments, and households better estimate their carbon emissions, we have developed the Canadian Carbon Intensity Database. The database calculates total embodied carbon using revenue, GDP, or the value of purchased goods and services. For 60 economic sectors in Canada and 51 final demand expenditure categories and exports, the Canadian Carbon Intensity Database provides carbon intensities for direct combustion (Scope 1), indirect purchases of electricity and heat (Scope 2), and in supply chains (Scope 3).
Taking a bite out of food waste reduces emissions and saves households money
Embodied in Canadian-sourced food consumption and disposal are 58 megatonnes of carbon emissions annually. Addressing food waste can reduce those emissions by more than six megatonnes, and also reduce household costs.
Only a third of Canada’s largest companies have Scope 3 emissions in their sights
Top Canadian companies aren’t yet accounting for all the pollution released from the products they sell, potentially exposing them to both economic and reputational risks.
Why carbon intensity matters—and a new way to track it
Carbon intensity is arguably the single most important indicator of progress in Canada’s energy transition, but has been extremely complex to measure—until now.
