Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

True to the vision and values expressed in the Health Safety Security and Environmental (HSSE) policy, Canaport LNG has applied the best available technology economically achievable (BATEA) throughout the design of the Terminal, and has continued to work diligently to increase its efficiency while reducing GHG emissions, through both capital projects and the optimization of existing processes. This has allowed us to greatly reduce our GHG emissions. The purpose of this GHG Management Plan is to demonstrate the effectiveness of these greenhouse gas emissions reduction and energy efficiency initiatives, and to integrate our ATO conditions and new regulatory framework in our overall HSE Integrated Management System (IMS).


Past reduction initiatives include upgrading tank insulation, the Boil-Off Gas Management Project, the Boil-Off Gas Blending Project and the Light Optimization Initiative in which all outdoor lights were replaced with LED fixtures. Canaport LNG has applied the best available technology economically achievable throughout the design of our Terminal, ensuring that we have reduced our emissions as much as possible. 


We are very proud to have registered our Environmental Management System under the ISO 14001 certification since 2012. As part of maintaining this certification, we must conduct periodical environmental compliance audits to verify we meet all Federal and Provincial regulatory requirements and to ensure we continue to meet all aspects of protecting the environmental integrity of our terminal and surrounding areas. Although it was not a requirement, Canaport LNG has voluntarily reported greenhouse gas emissions since the Terminal began operating. The ISO 14001 registration further validates our overall commitment to compliance and prevention of pollution within a cycle of continual improvement.
