Green Delivery Service

The Green Delivery Service pilot aims to:

  • Support the prototyping process of three Halifax-based startups
  • Support local retailers' delivery needs while encouraging Halifax residents to buy local
  • Reduce carbon emissions

This pilot is an initiative of the Halifax Innovation Outpost which aims to address climate change and other social challenges while supporting startups and scaleups in testing and evolving their products and services with public, private, post-secondary and community partners. It is intended that this will be the first of several green economy pilots that contribute to the Halifax Regional Municipality meeting both economic and climate goals.
