RightDrive Inc., a leading North American sustainable JDM import company, is propelling its operations into a greener future with our strategic commitment to sustainability. Our role in the auto industry does not deter our dedication to ensuring a healthier environment for all.
At RightDrive, we are adopting eco-friendly initiatives and integrating sustainable practices into our vehicle import operations. We are dedicated to reducing our carbon footprint through careful inspection and selection of our vehicle inventory, incorporating models that promise fuel-efficiency and less pollution.
Aligning with our commitment to sustainability, we've collaborated with Carbonzero to conduct a corporate GHG Emissions Inventory. In 2022, we analyzed our GHG emissions, including Scope 1, Scope 2, and Biogenic Carbon emissions. This valuable data allows us to better understand our environmental impact and create effective strategies for emission reduction.
We take pride in our iconic brands, like Nissan, Toyota, Honda and other JDM manufacturers. With a focus on sustainable mobility, these brands are actively involved in developing technologies that reduce emissions and increase fuel efficiency. By importing these vehicles, we are not only offering our customers a piece of automotive history but also contributing to a more sustainable future.
RightDrive is a proud promoter of right-hand drive (RHD) and other Japanese domestic market (JDM) vehicles. We believe in providing our customers with the most environment-friendly, fuel-efficient cars available, and our impressive inventory reflects this commitment.
At RightDrive, we leverage Canada's efficient railway system for vehicle shipment. This system is responsible for moving 70 per cent of all intercity freight annually, while only contributing to 1.1 per cent of the country's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Trains are, on average, three to four times more fuel-efficient than trucks. A single locomotive can transport a tonne of goods over 220 kilometres on just one litre of fuel. This translates to removing hundreds of trucks from congested roads, making rail transportation an eco-friendly choice for our vehicle shipments.
Railways are playing an essential role in helping Canada meet its international environmental commitments. A mere 10 per cent shift of freight from trucks to rail could result in reducing GHG emissions by around 4 megatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent. Alongside these statistics, the Railway Association of Canada (RAC) and its members are continuously working towards making the railways even more sustainable. They entered a memorandum of understanding with Transport Canada and Environment Canada in 1995, targeting locomotive emissions reduction. Since then, Canadian freight railways have reduced their GHG emissions intensity by 25.1 per cent, leading to a smaller carbon footprint relative to its traffic. By choosing rail to ship our vehicles, we are investing in an infrastructure committed to sustainability, efficiency, and reduced emissions. This method of transportation helps us to reinforce our promise of driving green and contributing to a more sustainable future.
We envision our growth into an OEM level of sales and services, and we plan to work closely with government agencies, insurance companies, and manufacturers to raise awareness about RHD vehicle markets. By adopting sustainable automotive import practices, we aim to ensure a greener future. In addition to ongoing GHG inventories and reduction initiatives, we are exploring more ways to enhance our environmental responsibility. Our commitment to sustainability underscores every aspect of our operations, from vehicle imports to customer service. We're driving green, one imported JDM vehicle at a time. At RightDrive Inc., sustainability isn't just a buzzword – it's our route to a better future.
