forestry facts
Since the early 1990s, Canada’s pulp and paper mills have reduced GHG emissions by 67%.

As climate change and global warming become more urgent, Canada’s forest sector is exploring new ways to deliver the secure, affordable, and sustainable energy that will help decarbonize our economy and reduce our country’s reliance on fossil fuels.

Today, nearly 80% (79%) of our forest operations and mills run on bioenergy (and that number is growing!). By converting wood waste into bioenergy, our sector has created a renewable, low-carbon energy source to power our operations and reduce emissions. Source: 2022 FPAC Energy and Environment survey

That same technology has the potential to not only help Canada’s remote communities reduce their reliance on fossil fuels, but to help other sectors of the economy decarbonize and our country as a whole reduce its carbon footprint.

Accordingly, in 2022, a 60% reduction in GHG emissions from the pulp and paper and wood products sector has been seen relative to 1990. Source: 2022 FPAC Energy and Environment survey
