The Road to Green
Tue, 31 January 2017, 4:30 PM – 7:00 PM EST
Canada’s economy depends on getting its natural resources like lumber and oil to global markets. Ensuring that Canada’s transportation network is efficient and effective is key to the well-being of the nation. The current transportation system is dependent on traditional fossil fuels. This creates challenges in both the private and public sectors as Canada works to meet its national and international climate change commitments.
What are the mandates in both the public and private sectors? What challenges do they face and more importantly – what opportunities exist? How can organizations across the transportation ecosystem work together to achieve their economic and climate goals?
