Getting on Track A primer on challenges to reducing carbon emissions in Canada’s oilsands

Publication March 1, 2022- By Eyab Al-Aini, Chris Severson-Baker, Jan Gorski

Canada's carbon-intensive oil and gas sector must significantly reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, and must also confront the prospect of a decline in demand for its product over the long term. Oilsands producers now rely on technologies to meet reduction targets that likely won’t be scalable and affordable until after 2030; however, the sector as a whole is better positioned than other parts of the economy to meet or exceed Canada’s 2030 emissions reduction targets.
