10. Help fight climate change

We have already seen the impacts of a changing climate in Canada, from heat domes, wildfires, flooding, rising sea levels and melting glaciers. There will continue to be serious economic and humanitarian impacts as a result of climate change. 

The transportation sector is responsible for 27 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions in Canada — with cars, vans, and light-duty trucks responsible for nearly half of that total. As a society, it’s paramount for business leaders to show community leadership and take initiative to stop defaulting to fossil-fuel-driven vehicles and make the switch to electric. 

The business case for owning and operating electric cars, vans and trucks is only growing stronger, so take the next step: sign up for the EV Fleets course and learn more about the vehicles themselves.
