Topics

#Climate Change


Freight is the fastest-growing segment of transport-related climate emissions, and yet the gap between expectations by regulators and stakeholders and the commercially available solutions for companies is enormous.

BSR’s Future of Fuels will host its latest stakeholder forum to discuss key questions with members PepsiCo, Royal Dutch Shell, The Coca Cola Company, United Parcel Service (UPS), Walmart, and Westport Innovations, as well as other stakeholders. Questions we'll discuss will include:

  • What is the North Star for freight sustainability in the United States and globally?
  • How do companies define progress? What are the milestones?
  • What are the key gaps for companies to address? Government? Collaboration? 

 This is an official side event of the BSR Conference 2016.

Speakers

  • Bill Van Amburg, Senior Vice President; Truck Initiative Leader, CALSTART
  • Cheryl Bynum, National Program Director, SmartWay, U.S. EPA
  • Angie Farrag-Thibault, Director, Collaborative Initiatives and Transport and Logistics, BSR
