Secretariat of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation Releases New Report on Freight Sustainability

The Secretariat of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) released a report entitled, Destination Sustainability: Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Freight Transportation in North America. The report argues that cross-border cooperation to improve environmental performance of the North American freight system is urgently needed, not just to enhance enironmental sustainability, but to safeguard regional economic competitiveness and efficiency.
