Ottawa's greenhouse gas emissions decreased by 11 per cent between 2012 and 2016, but it appears the drop was mostly due to the closure of the province's coal-fired power plants.

Every four years, the city calculates emissions generated both by the wider community and by its own operations as it aims to hit its targets to combat climate change.

The latest report is to be tabled Thursday.
