The climate is changing. Higher temperatures, more intense and frequent natural disasters, and rising sea levels are among the many challenges that climate change poses. The transportation sector has recognized its role and is paving the way for a more sustainable future. From fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction goals to hydrogen-powered aircraft and battery-electric trucks, sustainable transportation technologies are advancing every day. Tune in to the Net-Zero Carbon Summit to hear industry experts discuss strategies to decarbonize the transportation sector.

Logistics is about trade offs and overcoming these trade offs. There are many emerging alternative fuels for freight transportation and all of them have advantages and disadvantages. We will discuss these alternatives and trade offs.
As hydrogen grows in consideration as a fuel source for long-haul trucking, Nikola Corp.'s President of Energy and Commercial Pablo Koziner is tasked with finding ways to bring down the cost of making the fuel so it can be profitably power the startup's fuel cell trucks in the U.S. and Europe.
In this fireside chat, Josh Raglin, Chief Sustainability Officer of Norfolk Southern, and Mike Baudendistel, Market Expert at FreightWaves, discuss railroads’ continued role in reducing the environmental impact of surface transportation. The discussion will include thoughts on the railroads “taking trucks off the road,” operational actions to improve fuel efficiency, advances in locomotive technology, and the ways that freight rail best fits into increasingly efficient supply chains.
The world can't get to a net zero carbon world unless it has a benchmark to measure the costs and benefits of that quest. That is why carbon markets will play such a vital role. Lisa Street is the director of global carbon pricing for OPIS and understands how the global carbon markets work. She will explain their basics in this segment of the summit hosted by editor at large John Kingston.
Because of the inherent efficiencies of shipping by rail, railroads have built-in advantages when it comes to cutting emissions. In this fireside chat, Wabtec Chief Technology Officer Eric Gebhardt discusses how the rail sector is powering up that advantage using battery-electric locomotives, hydrogen fuel cells, and public-sector partnerships.
Dan Scarbrough and Danny Gomez will discuss the growing presence of ESG Globally. They will explore how firms are finding value in emission reduction efforts and highlight the tools available for meeting ESG targets.
It seems like Net-Zero is the current industry buzz-term around sustainability. For a company interested in getting to net-zero, or as close to it as possible, what are some ground-level processes that need to be in place? If you're a logistics manager and have measurement processes, goals and executive buy-in, then you are on the right track.
Transparency about sustainability plans is incredibly important and investors are interested in knowing how companies are working towards carbon neutrality. As You Sow helps investors gain visibility on the companies they are looking to invest in.
