The BC forest industry has been slowly increasing its energy self sufficiency for several decades by the substitution of its own wood residues for fossil fuels as well as the generation of electricity to displace purchased electricity form Provincial utilities. This increase in energy self-sufficiency has dramatically reduced both direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from reduced fossil fuel consumption as well as indirect emissions from purchased electricity. By 1999 the BC forest industry had reduced its GHG emissions by more than 1 Mt or 24 percent below 1990 emission levels.
