FLO teams with Imperial to support Canada’s emissions reduction goals

FLO plans to expand its electric vehicle charging network in Canada

CALGARY, Alberta – FLO, a leading North American electric vehicle charging network, and Imperial announced a unique collaboration that will support Canada’s net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions goals by expanding FLO charging network for electric vehicles.

“Our collaboration with Imperial is noteworthy—involving two major players in Canada’s energy sector in support of furthering Canada’s goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050,” said Louis Tremblay, president and CEO of FLO. “Importantly, the agreement will generate financial benefits that will allow FLO to expand its EV charging station deployments, propelling our goal of transforming Canada’s mobility future. We’re thrilled with this agreement, and eager to bring Canadians more reliable EV charging solutions nationwide.”

“Canada has clearly defined policies that support lower-emissions solutions and deployment of new technologies,” said Jon Wetmore, Imperial’s vice president of downstream. “Our collaboration with FLO will complement other Imperial GHG emission-reduction efforts, including plans to produce and supply lower-emission fuels, next-generation resource recovery technologies and carbon capture.”

Key components of the collaboration include jointly developing a charging service option for Imperial’s Esso- and Mobil-branded wholesalers, and an agreement to transfer credits under federal Clean Fuel Regulations.
