Greenhouse Gas Verification Programme
Greenhouse Gas verification programme in the aluminum industry
1. BUSINESS CHALLENGE
Over the past decade, the aluminum companies operating in Quebec have voluntarily achieved significant reductions in their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In 2002, the Aluminum Association of Canada and the Government of Quebec signed a covenant to voluntarily reduce an additional 200,000 tons of GHG emissions from primary aluminum operations by the end of 2007. The covenant proposed gradual, permanent reductions that allow for growth in the industry, and acknowledge the contribution to the collective effort to reduce GHG emissions.
