The call for proposal under Phase 1 of the Green Freight Assessment Program is now closed. Thank you for your interest.
The Program provides 50% cost-shared contributions up to $10,000 to Canadian companies towards a third-party green freight assessment. The assessment will determine the company’s performance baseline and build scenarios to test strategies to identify solutions for poor performing areas of their fleet and operations.
What can a Green Freight Assessment do for your company?
A Green Freight Assessment will help your company review its operations to determine where there are opportunities for improvement. This assessment will not only look at the fleet portrait as a whole, but also identify behavioural and operational opportunities that may be available to optimize business operations. This is more than just adding side skirts! The recommendations will help business owners and operators make informed decisions to ultimately reduce operating costs and increase profits while having a positive impact on the environment.
Who can conduct a Green Freight Assessment?
NRCan has compiled a list of currently identified Green Freight Assessors. You may also select a firm not included on the list, but should consider the following:

- What tool/methodology will be used to conduct analysis on the data?
- Demonstrate at least 50% of secured funding of their share of the project costs;
- Demonstrate that they engaged with the green freight energy assessor;
- Legal entities validly incorporated or registered in Canada and
- Green freight assessments include medium-duty-vehicles (Class 5,6) and heavy-duty-vehicles (Class 7, 8a, 8b) only.
