Few industries are as well positioned as Canada's transportation sector to improve and maintain Canada's environment while contributing too the country's economy. Canada's transportation sector now produces more than a quarter of all the greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions, a major contributor to climate change. While reducing GHG emissions will go a long way to protecting our environment, it's only one of several good reasons for transportation companies to adapt more fuel-efficient measures.
The fact is that fuel efficiency benefits everyone. Among the benefits are:
- Decreased operating costs
- A smoother ride
- Driver-developed best practices
