Canada joins the Drive to Zero Pledge
On May 28, 2019, Environment Minister McKenna announced in Vancouver that Canada is joining the Drive to Zero Pledge, an international initiative developed by CALSTART aimed at increasing the number of zero and low emission vehicles in the medium- and heavy-duty transportation sector.
The goal of the campaign is to make zero emission technology commercially viable by 2025 in the commercial vehicle market segments where zero-emission and near-zero technology is most likely to succeed first, building up to the domination of zero emission technology in commercial vehicle sales globally by 2040.
Drive to Zero partners include cities, manufacturers, fleets, fuel suppliers, and now, Canada. The B.C. government and the City of Vancouver have also signed on.
