Road transportation now accounts for more than one-quarter of Canada’s total GHG emissions, and the level and share are both rising. Our latest report looks at how adopting disruptive technologies into heavy-duty road freight could take Canada further down the road in reducing its GHG emissions: http://ow.ly/kCnE30jGYry
