In November, the Canadian Climate Institute launched 440Megatonnes.ca, a data-driven resource for tracking progress towards Canada’s 2030 emissions reduction target, on the way to net zero by 2050.
440Megatonnes.ca features expert insights that are not available anywhere else, a fully searchable database, and downloadable data about key indicators of progress towards Canada’s climate targets. At launch, the website featured:
- Pathways: Are we on track to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 440 Mt by 2030? Which sectors and technologies are leading the way? This lens leverages the Institute’s independent modelling of Canada’s Emissions Reduction Plan.
- Policies: Which government policies and investments have been introduced to get us to 440 Mt? This database includes over 400 policies and spending commitments by federal, provincial, and territorial governments.
- Corporate: What are Canadian companies doing to get to 440 Mt? This database tracks corporate climate commitments and emissions pathways for the top 60 companies on the TSX. 440Megatonnes.ca will also include emissions intensities for Scope 1,2, and 3 emissions covering 240 economic sectors.
- Beyond 2030: As ambition and action accelerate, what does Canada’s path to net zero by 2050 look like? This section includes scenario results and new data files from the Institute’s report, Canada’s Net Zero Future.
Every week, our experts will dive into the data to share insights on areas of policy progress and opportunities to course-correct. Providing progress updates in as close to real-time as possible, 440Megatonnes.ca will improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and outcomes of climate policy in Canada.
