The Défi sans auto solo, organized by the Association des Centres de gestion des déplacements du Québec, returns for a 14th edition, which will be held from Sept. 19–25.
This friendly competition between businesses and institutions from all Quebec regions is a way to raise public awareness about the use of sustainable means of transport.
Moreover, since this year, the challenge offers its services through a free app, that can be downloaded on any smartphone.
The latter will make it possible to count the total kilometers travelled, as well as the kilograms of greenhouse gases.
Participating organizations have the chance to receive visibility prizes. Other prizes are also given to participating employees and students.
Let’s note that in Quebec, the transport sector is responsible for 44.8 per cent of the province’s greenhouse gas emissions. (J.B./IJL)
