The Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) has released its new report, “Destination Sustainability: Reducing Greehouse Gas Emissions from Freight Transportation in North America.”

“Destination Sustainability” is the product of “expertise, and perspectives” of specialists in the field of transportation and is designed to serve as a template of “recommendations for actions” to ensure the “environmental sustainability of the North American transportation system.”

The CEC is a NAFTA-chartered commission focused on the issue of sustainable freight transportation. Cascadia Center’s Bruce Agnew serves as the chair of the group.

Cascadia Center

Founded in 1993, as the Cascadia Project, Discovery Institute’s Cascadia Center for Regional Development is an important force in regional transportation and sustainable development issues. Cascadia is known for its involvement in transportation and development issues in the Cascadia Corridor, Puget Sound and in the U.S.-Canadian cross-border realm. We’ve recently added to that mix through a major program to promote U.S. efforts to reduce reliance on foreign oil, including the earliest possible development and integration of flex-fuel, plug-in, hybrid-electric vehicles.
