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.

James Bradbury, PhD, mitigation program director of Georgetown Climate Center at Georgetown University Law Center, will present "The Transportation and Climate Initiative: Multi-State Collaboration to Advance Equitable Low-Carbon Transportation" as part of the U.S. DOT Volpe Center’s 2021 thought leadership series, Innovation for a Sustainable, Equitable Transportation System, on Tuesday, August 3, 2021, at 12 p.m. (ET).
