Event Format: Virtual (Zoom – Register Here)
The transportation sector is responsible for roughly a third of the U.S.ʼs carbon dioxide pollution, with about 80 percent coming from cars and trucks on the nation’s roadways. With its authorization of $1 trillion over five years, the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) represents a historic investment in the country’s transportation systems and infrastructure. Those investments have the potential to contribute significantly to the nation’s efforts to achieve major reductions in the emissions and pollution that contribute to climate change.
Join the New Jersey Climate Change Resource Center for this virtual Climate Academy to learn how different scenarios of federal transportation investments may contribute to New Jersey’s efforts to achieve its statewide 2030 and 2050 greenhouse gas emissions limits.
