GHG Emissions from Community Transportation

On-road transportation is a significant source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, accounting for one-third of all emissions in the Lower Mainland. Reducing energy consumption through greener commercial fleets, using more energy-efficient technologies and promoting active and alternative transportation creates fewer GHG emissions and saves money. GHG emissions by community on-road transportation is a measure of how well residents and the commercial sector are doing to improve energy efficiency and tackle climate change. The City's target is to reduce GHG emissions from the residential sector by 20% per capita by 2020, and to reduce total community GHG emissions by 33% per capita in the same timeframe.
