The Conservative Government is on the right track with its approach to reducing green house gas emissions.
That, according to the International Institute for Sustainable Development which is examining the country's progress on a mandate to reduce carbon emissions by 17 per cent below 2005 levels.
The Institute says emissions have been cut to nearly of third of that goal.
However, analysts argue that if the Harper Conservatives want to abide by the Kyoto Protocol, they must streamline carbon pricing systems and introduce emissions targets for industries they hadn't intended to regulate, such as transportation.
While, domestic offset programs, where companies who can't meet their targets are forced to pay the difference, should be also introduced.
