About the Event

The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) in partnership with Smart Freight Centre (SFC) invites you to join a two-day Europe Workshop on Green Freight Programs on 6 and 7 April 2017. The event brings together governments, industry and civil society to explore how to expand green freight programs across Europe and promote collaboration between them.

Green Freight Programs supplement policies and empower industry to take practical actions that make the global freight sector more efficient and environmentally sustainable. The CCAC Global Green Freight Action Plan supports this by aligning and replicating green freight programs worldwide and integrating black carbon and air pollutants alongside CO2 emissions.

The workshop covers:

6 April 10:30 – 17:00 Introducing Green Freight Program
