Strong Truck Standards Would Cut Shipper Costs and Emissions


Meeting Description:
 
REMINDER: Don't forget to register for tomorrow's webinar on how strong truck standards would cut shipper costs and emissions. 

Freight transport has significant financial and environmental costs.  US businesses spend $650 billion a year on freight trucking services.  Freight trucks account for over half a billion tons of GHG emissions a year, and are the fastest growing single source of GHG emissions. A new analysis by Ceres and EDF concludes that strong truck standards can cut both freight costs and emissions.

The Obama Administration is in the process of developing new fuel economy and GHG standards for medium- and heavy-duty trucks, and its determination will affect both your freight costs and emissions.  Join us on July 9th for a webinar with Carol Lee Rawn of Ceres and Jason Mathers of EDF, who will provide an overview of the savings associated with strong standards and how you can help ensure that stringent standards are adopted.
