Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) was established by the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation (NAAEC) to support cooperation among the NAFTA partners to address environmental issues of continental concern, including the environmental challenges and opportunities presented by continent-wide free trade. The Commission for Environmental Cooperation facilitates collaboration and public participation to foster conservation, protection and enhancement of the North American environment for the benefit of present and future generations, in the context of increasing economic, trade, and social links among Canada, Mexico, and the United States.
North American Power Plant Air Emissions builds upon the first-such CEC assessment (published in 2004) that compiled information on emissions of criteria air pollutants, mercury, and carbon dioxide from power plants in North America for the year 2002. For the first time, data on the release of air pollutants from power plants burning fossil fuels were brought together from different national sources, varying greatly in terms of completeness and accessibility, into one format offering comparable information on fossil fuel power plant emissions in North America.
