CPC commits to net zero emissions by 2050; work of the Union helped pushed to act now
Canada Post is finally addressing climate change and the role it must play in saving our planet. Last week, Canada Post CEO Doug Ettinger officially announced the Corporation’s commitment to transform its corporately owned fleet of 14,000 vehicles to fully electric by 2040 and putting Canada Post on a path to net zero emissions by 2050.
This is a welcome announcement and a testament to the dedicated and devoted work of the Union to push Canada Post to address its own greenhouse gas emissions footprint. CUPW has advocated for many years, through the Delivering Community Power campaign, and our work on the Environment Committee and Appendix T, for Canada Post to be a leader in fighting climate change, while creating good, green, unionized jobs, and providing necessary services in all corners of the country. In his address, Canada Post CEO Doug Ettinger thanked the bargaining agents for their continued engagement and collaboration on this crucial step.
