Reducing Transportation GHG Emissions in Canada - A Dialogue on a Lower Carbon Future

When: Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Where: Ottawa, ON

Canada’s Public Policy Forum has convened a series of expert dialogues focusing on challenges and opportunities for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from road transportation in Canada.

The transport sector represents one of the largest sources of GHG emissions in Canada, with road-based passenger and freight the responsible for the bulk of these emissions. An effective strategy to address GHGs in Canada must include ways to significantly reduce this sector’s emissions. Furthermore, such efforts will require a range of strategies and actions, and collaboration between the public and private sectors and civil society.

This initiative will seek to develop a sound knowledge base of the complex relationship between carbon intensity of fuels, vehicle efficiency and modes of transportation, and consumer behavior and choice. The objective is to better understand the different perspectives surrounding transportation GHG emissions: opportunities, challenges and potential options. Bringing together diverse perspectives and views from leaders and experts across the country will help catalyze this timely and important discussion.

Invitation-only sessions took place in Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver in June and September 2013.
