Greenhouse gas emissions from transportation account for about 28 percent of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. As we work together to address the profound climate crisis, the U.S. Department of Transportation Volpe Center’s new speaker series, Innovation for a Sustainable, Equitable Transportation System, will explore how to transition to a low-/no-carbon transportation system—one that enables disadvantaged communities to gain access to mobility, jobs, and economic opportunity.

Marilyn A. Brown, PhD, Regents' and Brook Byers Professor of Sustainable Systems in the School of Public Policy, Georgia Institute of Technology, will present her talk "Advancing a Just and Low-Carbon Future with Urban Electrification" as part of the Innovation for a Sustainable, Equitable Transportation System speaker series on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, at 12 p.m. (ET).
