This progress report outlines the British Columbia government?s continued commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from government operations. The government will continue to work towards a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) for the period 2000 to 2005. From 1990 to 2000 there was a slight increase in greenhouse gas emissions (129,105 CO2e to 131,825 CO2e). The primary factor in that increase was the increased marginal emission factor for electricity emissions. One of the results from actions taken by the provincial government to reduce greenhouse gas emissions was a reduction in energy use per employee from 68 GJ in 1999 to 65 GJ in 2000. Many of the other actions taken in 2000/01 are expected to result in reductions in greenhouse gas emissions over the next 5 years. Those actions include:
