Canada is falling well short of its international commitment to reduce greenhouse gases and will need major new action to offset rising oil industry emissions and meet the 2020 target adopted by the Harper government, Environment Canada said Thursday.

In its annual update, the government projected that, without new measures, the country's GHG emissions in 2020 will total 734 megatonnes, virtually unchanged from 2005 level of 737 megatonnes. It said the federal and provincial government policies already adopted since 2005 will reduce emissions by 128 megatonnes in 2020 compared to what they would have been without such action.
