Electrification of transport
“Branché au travail” program
Evidence suggests that increasing the substitution of electric power for gasoline in fuelling vehicles will support the federal government's goal to improve air quality by reducing Canada’s total GHG emissions 17% by 2020 and 30% by 2030, relative to 2005 emission levels 1.
In Québec alone, for instance, replacing 1 million gasoline-powered cars with electric cars would reduce emissions by 3.4 million tonnes per year.
Bell has committed to support the Québec government's policy to reach 100,000 electric and rechargeable hybrid vehicles by 2020. As part of the “Branché au travail” program with the Ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources naturelles, we have installed 42 charging stations for use by our team members in Bell buildings – 6 in the Québec City region and 36 across Montréal. These use Internet-of-Things technology from Bell Mobility and are free for team members to use.
