Transportation fuel is projected to be a leading source of increases in greenhouse gas emissions through 2050, contributing to climate change. To reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector, we must find solutions that are broadly sustainable.

Our updated report, “The Sustainability Impacts of Fuel,” includes numerous new studies, plus feedback from experts during forums led by BSR's Future of Fuels. The report summarizes the latest research and stakeholder views on the market outlook and sustainability impacts from production through distribution and use of biofuels, diesel, electric vehicles, hydrogen, and natural gas. It identifies the most important implications for business and opportunities to accelerate low-carbon, sustainable fuels. A part of BSR's Business in a Climate-Constrained World strategy, the report also incorporates the recent Future of Fuels sustainable trucking guide, which discusses transitioning to low-carbon fuel.

The 2015 update to this report more strongly emphasizes the need to take bold steps today to address climate change and keep global warming below 2-degrees C, in line with the latest findings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
