Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) Awareness Initiative


Advancing awareness, support and adoption of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) and technology in Canada’s health services sector


Project Objective

To advance awareness and use of lower-carbon transportation options, such as energy-efficient technologies and practices and lower-carbon vehicles and fuels in Canada.


Project Details

By embracing Canada’s health sector, the project team will incite sector stakeholders to adopt ZEVs and ZEV technology.

The project team will work with multiple stakeholder groups including senior administrative leaders, medical staff, support staff such as facility/engineering/energy champions/purchasing and finance, visitors and patients as well as vendors and contractors of Canadian health care organisations.

We will advance awareness and knowledge of ZEVs and the infrastructure required for their support, increase the understanding and capacity of the sector with regard to charging and fuelling infrastructure, and provide opportunities and resources to enhance understanding and adoption of ZEV technology.

The Canadian Coalition for Green Healthcare - For over 20 years, the Coalition has been helping those working in health care facilities, non-governmental and governmental organisations, individuals, students and businesses to share green health care best practices and to become better equipped to deal with the growing demands placed upon them to be environmentally responsible health service workers and individuals. We provide a virtual platform for the sharing of ideas and resources, lend support to those seeking to build a stronger, healthier and more sustainable health service delivery system and strive to improve access to best practice information, innovative goods and services that offer a clear environmental advantage to users within the sector, and provide a venue for stakeholders to work together to reduce health care’s environmental impact.

Plug 'N Drive - Plug'n Drive is a non-profit organisation that is championing the electrification of transportation in Canada, and is accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles in order to maximize their environmental and economic benefits. Plug'n Drive has made incredible strides in advancing its mission through the launch of the world's first Electric Vehicle Discovery Centre - a one-stop hub of education and experiential learning - combined with its acclaimed EV roadshow that has taken place in communities across Canada and beyond.
