Metro Vancouver conducts research on different ways to reduce emissions in terms of health and environmental benefits, feasibility and costs.
The goal of this project is to understand and quantitatively evaluate the impact of a set of policies to reduce greenhouse gas emission activity across the region in accordance with IPCC 1.5°C climate stabilization targets adopted by the Metro Vancouver Board: a 45% reduction by 2030 from a 2010 base year, and a carbon neutral region by 2050.
This report provides a relative health impact scale that indicates how changes in emissions of different air contaminants impact public health in the Canadian portion of the Lower Fraser Valley.
This report developed a prioritized list of targeted and focused policies or programs to reduce air emissions from heavy duty diesel vehicles operating in the Canadian Lower Fraser Valley.
This report identifies strategies for mitigating exposure to traffic-related air pollutants in the Lower Fraser Valley with special consideration of vulnerable populations.
On‐road transportation is estimated to contribute approximately one quarter of ‘smog forming pollutants’ in the Lower Fraser Valley. Metro Vancouver wished to obtain an assessment of heavy‐duty vehicle emissions in the region.
The MVRD and its partner agencies recognize the importance of heavy-duty vehicle emissions in the airshed, the need to investigate their effects, the means and costs of achieving
The aim of the AirCare ON-ROAD testing program is to reduce particulate matter emissions from heavy-duty diesel vehicles in the Metro Vancouver area. This report provides a review of the effectiveness of the program and makes recommendations for future strategies.
The objective of this project is to identify cost-effective ways
to reduce emissions from three sources: non-road heavy-duty diesel equipment, railway locomotives and small passenger ferries.
