GHG Emissions from City Fleet

On-road transportation is a significant source of greenhouse gases, accounting for one-third of all emission in the Lower Mainland, and is one of the primary users of energy in City operations. Reducing fleet fuel consumption through regular maintenance, reducing fleet size, and using alternative fuel vehicles reduces greenhouse gas emissions and saves money. The GHG emissions from the City's fleet is a measure of how well the City is doing as a major owner and operator of vehicles to improve energy efficiency and reduce our impact on climate change. The City's target is a 20% reduction in GHG emissions from operations by 2020.
