    Description:

    In society today, many Canadians are concerned about the environment and the scarcity of resources. Consequently, many individuals and governments are seeking ways to reduce or alter energy and water consumption patterns. This article uses data from the 2007 Households and the Environment Survey to examine the association between income, education, ownership, age of dwelling and years lived at the dwelling and the use of low-volume toilets; low-flow showerheads; compact fluorescent light bulbs; programmable thermostats; and appliances bought to save energy or water.

    Description:

    Energy use is one of the primary contributors to environmental degradation and climate change. This article provides a profile of the Canadian manufacturing industry and the investments made in energy-related processes and technologies in 2006. These investments either reduced the amount of energy used for a process, or lowered the amount of greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants produced through the production and use of energy.

    Description:

    This study focuses on six environmental behaviours at the household level: use of reduced volume toilets; use of low-flow showerheads; use of compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL); recycling; composting; and lowering temperatures. In 2006, almost half of Canadian households were very active across this range of environmental behaviours.

    Description:

    Managing lawns and gardens is a popular activity that takes on different forms across Canada. Statistics from the Households and the Environment Survey show that regional differences create a diversity of lawn and garden practices. Specifically, this study looks at how the application of pesticides and fertilizers and the use of outdoor water conservation devices vary.

    Description:

    Zero tillage is a relatively recent innovation on Canadadian farms however, it may not always be suitable for all crop and soil conditions. Zero till practices matched appropriately to crop and field conditions have the potential to reduce agriculture's impacts on the environment and lower energy and labour costs. The main sources of data are from Statistics Canada's 2001 Farm Environmental Management Survey (FEMS) and the 2001 Census of Agriculture.

    Description:

    For the purposes of this study, eight environmental management systems (EMSs) were considered: whole farm environmental plan; manure management plan; fertilizer management plan; pesticide management plan; water management plan; wildlife conservation plan; grazing management plan, and nutrient management plan.

    The information on the use of farm environmental plans was obtained from the Farm Environmental Management Survey (FEMS) conducted in 2001 by Statistics Canada and sponsored in part by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

    Description:

    In 2001, the total value of certain farm investments for environmental protection was $170.9 million, an average of $1,091 per farm. These investments accounted for a very small proportion of total investments by Canadian farmers.

    In some cases, there are substantial differences in environmental protection investments between provinces and between farm types. Farms in Quebec, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia spend more on environmental protection, as do hog, dairy and poultry farms.

    The data in this article are from the Farm Financial Survey (FFS). The data were collected by telephone interview from a sample of 18,000 farms with a gross farm income of $10,000 or more. The purpose of the survey is to collect financial data, chiefly on assets, debt, revenues, expenses and investments.

    In 2002, for the first time, the survey collected data on the amount of money invested in 2001 in certain environmental protection improvements: manure storage systems; pesticide, chemical or fuel storage systems; and shelterbelts, windbreaks, buffer strips or fences for waterway protection.

    Description:

    Businesses today are involved in a variety of practices aimed at preventing or reducing environmental degradation generated from their production activity. During the 1990s, the environmental regulation context changed. Increasingly, governments have relied on voluntary initiatives undertaken by businesses to reduce pollutants and waste, as opposed to regulations. However, at the same time, the federal authorities have undertaken to revise the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA), in order to increase federal power for environmental regulation but with strong emphasis put on promoting pollution prevention. Consequently, businesses today are looking at alternative ways to limit impacts from their operations on the environment.

    Environmental Management and Technologies in the Business Sector presents a profile of business demand for environmental processes and technologies, pollution prevention methods and environmental practices, such as environmental management systems and voluntary actions. What types of treatment processes are the most popular ones for reducing gas emissions, liquid, solid and hazardous waste, noise, radiation and vibration, for saving energy or for site reclamation? What is the market for environmental processes and technologies? What pollution prevention methods are used more frequently? What additional environmental practices have businesses adopted (for instance, are voluntary programs more popular than eco-labelling?)?

    This paper is based on results from the Survey of Environmental Protection Expenditures. For the first time, the survey asked detailed questions on the type of environmental process or technology used and the adoption of environmental practices. The paper is a complement to both 1996-1997 and 1998 Environmental Protection Expenditures in the Business Sector reports (Catalogue no. 16F0006XIE).
