Greenhouse gas emissions from transportation account for about 28% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. As we work together to address the profound climate crisis, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) 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.

Erin Mayfield, PhD, sustainable systems engineering and public policy researcher and postdoctoral scholar at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment and the High Meadows Environmental Institute at Princeton University, will present her talk, "Net-Zero America: Potential Pathways, Infrastructure, and Impacts," as part of the Innovation for a Sustainable, Equitable Transportation System speaker series on Tuesday, June 22, 2021.
