Reduce Transportation Emissions
Tackling transportation emissions represents an opportunity to reduce emissions, drive down future operating costs, and help reduce pollution in local communities.
Transportation contributes to nearly 25% of the world’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, with road vehicles being the primary culprits behind these emissions. Apart from GHG emissions, transportation also leads to local air pollution, which adversely affects human health and well-being, disproportionately impacting communities of color and low-income neighborhoods. As a result, companies like yours are increasingly acknowledging the significance of adopting zero-emissions vehicles to meet their organization-wide emission reduction goals.
Regardless of your sector, your company likely owns or lease vehicles – from light passenger to heavy trucks – that contribute to your company’s GHG footprint. Identifying opportunities to decarbonize your fleet will help your company reduce emissions, decrease local air pollution, reduce your costs, and demonstrate your commitment to your climate goals. Transport companies and others with larger transportation-related Scope 1 emissions have a major role to play in deploying strategies that can reduce emissions and optimize freight and transportation systems and networks.
