North America (Change)

Date - Feb 6, 2023
11:00 am EST - 12:00 pm EST

Join us on Monday, February 6 at 8:00 AM PT/ 11:00 AM ET/ 4:00 PM UTC for a CILTNA Webinar: “Scaling Up Sustainability in Transport and Logistics”.

Recent calls to “decouple” US-China trade and concerns over the US Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) have led to fears of fragmentation and deglobalization. At the same time, there is an urgent need to decarbonize trade and supply chains to get to Net Zero by 2050. Yet, international trade and greater cooperation can amplify global efforts to address climate change and put the planet on a sustainable growth trajectory. Global trade and supply chains are essential to scaling up the green technologies that can ensure sustainable growth, free from carbon pollution.

While there are many obstacles to the energy transition needed to decarbonize our transport systems and supply chains, it is recognized that urgent collective action and leadership is required at all levels – both in business and government. To explore the issues, join us for this next CILTNA webinar in a series on Sustainability and ESG in Transport & Logistics.

Moderated by:

Eugene Hoeven, President and Founder, EH&A Business Advisory
