Accelerate, Canada’s first supply chain alliance for zero-emission vehicle partners, has been launched.
The alliance launched with 20 members, and will provide a forum where members can collaborate, strategize and advocate for priorities to support the accelerated development of a ZEV supply chain in Canada.
“We’re in a race to become a global ZEV leader,” said Accelerate’s acting executive director Moe Kabbara. “Accelerating Canada’s ZEV supply chain comes down to competitiveness and jobs. Acting now to create this alliance and to position ourselves for success in the rapidly changing automotive sector will ensure we not only retain existing jobs in Canada but also add new ones.”
Accelerate will develop an industrial roadmap to build out the supply chain, engage in policy advocacy, and enable collaboration among ZEV players, while attracting investment, securing public support and creating a talent pipeline to power the emerging supply chain.
Several major ZEV industry players have already joined the alliance.
