Note to readers

Québec shall publish officially validated data on the emissions of GHG at the end of the year. At this time, these data will already be old in three years. The Journal has therefore chosen to work with the preliminary data of the ministry of Environment of Québec as soon as they were available. The changes that might occur would be minimal as the provincial government uses data from the federal which have already been validated. Note that these figures exclude GHG emissions from the production of biomass.
