The transportation sector contributes 40% of Connecticut’s total greenhouse gas emissions that disproportionately harm urban, low-income, and minority populations in our state. If we want to meet our carbon reduction goals and fight climate change, it's critical that we work together to devise new solutions centered on public transportation, electrification, and more.
We will discuss Connecticut’s role in the Transportation & Climate Initiative (TCI), a multi-state effort to reduce transportation emissions, identify opportunities to engage in the TCI process, and identify how this effort aligns with your organization’s mission and goals. TCI will address and fund cross-cutting issues such as housing, health, access to transportation and jobs, climate change and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Your voice at the table is extraordinarily important in this effort to effectively address a broad range of issues for communities bearing the disproportionate effect of pollution.
