Call for Delegates: CASA Vehicle Emissions Team

CASA Vehicle Emissions Team (VET) has the mandate to recommend initiatives to the CASA Board to help protect pubic health and the environment from vehicle emissions produced in Alberta. Its purpose is to pilot, monitor and evaluate CASA-approved projects related to vehicle emissions reduction.

Recent projects of the VET have included the Clean Commute employer-based transportation demand management program and the Remote Optical Vehicle Emissions Recorder 2 project. Projects are implemented by VET sub-groups and overseen by the team as a whole.
