A carbon map to see GHG emissions related to mobility
Montreal will have a carbon map to better visualize the pollution generated by transportation. On Wednesday, the City formalized its project agreement with the École de technologie supérieure (ETS), Université Laval, École Polytechnique de Montréal and Collège Rosemont for the realization of the project.
Under the management of the construction engineering department of the ETS, the researchers will create a map that aims to present the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of road transport. These represent 28% of the metropolis' GHG emissions.
The map is part of the climate plan adopted by the City in 2020. The plan aims to make Montreal a carbon neutral metropolis by ;by 2050 through 46 pre-established actions. Seven of them directly affect mobility issues.
“The carbon map will allow us to measure the effectiveness of our initiatives to reduce GHG emissions in road transport”, indicated Marie-Andrée Mauger, City Manager for Ecological Transition and the Environment.
