Freight trucks are one of the fastest growing sources of greenhouse gas emissions in Ontario. In the City of Toronto, trucks are the largest emitter of nitrogen oxides, which contribute to smog and respiratory diseases such as asthma. Growing population and employment in Toronto means more pressure to transport goods quickly and reliably, which increases the number of trucks on municipal roads.
Greening the Goods presents policy options and innovative ideas that government and businesses can implement to improve goods movement in Toronto. These ideas will help companies cut both costs and emissions of their operations, and reduce congestion on our streets, saving us all time and money.
