Economic and environmental impact of manufacturing exports in 2017
Notice of release
Québec, December 14, 2021. – The Institut de la statistique du Québec released today an analytical bulletin on the economic and environmental impact of Québec manufacturing exports in 2017.
The analysis shows the importance of manufacturing exports for the Québec economy by highlighting the structure of these exports, their Québec content, as well as their contribution to the GDP and the jobs generated in different sectors. It also makes it possible to estimate the environmental impact of the production of these exports on Québec territory in terms of CO2 equivalent emissions, both in total and per million dollars exported.
In addition to providing interesting results on the structure of manufacturing exports and their importance for the Québec economy, this study illustrates the potential of the Québec input-output model for conducting economic and environmental impact studies with a high level of detail by sector and by product category.
The Institut de la statistique du Québec produces, analyzes and disseminates official, objective and quality statistical information on various aspects of Québec society. It is responsible for conducting all statistical surveys of general interest. The relevance of its work makes it a strategic ally for decision makers and all those wishing to learn more about Québec.
