Innovation for a Sustainable, Equitable Transportation System
Coming Soon: Our 2021 Thought Leadership Speaker Series
Transportation is a major contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and climate change. GHG emissions from transportation account for about 28 percent of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.
The U.S. DOT Volpe Center’s new speaker series on Innovation for a Sustainable, Equitable Transportation System will explore how the transportation enterprise can work together to address the profound climate crisis while ensuring that decision making and investments also address transportation equity. Solutions to these complex challenges require a holistic approach to transportation emissions reduction and the development of significantly enhanced equity and sustainability initiatives.
As we innovate toward a clean energy future, this series will consider how to transition to a low-/no-carbon transportation system—one that enables disadvantaged communities to gain access to mobility, jobs, and economic opportunity.
