The commercial / institutional sector transports some goods by air, rail and boat.  Airplanes run on aviation fuel, which is made from oil. Railway engines and boats use diesel, while larger ships generally use another oil product, bunker fuel.
 
In 2010, air, rail and marine transport for this sector in Nova Scotia
consumed 9,764,527 GJ and
emitted 843,377 GHG tonnes.
