Ecologización de las operaciones de transporte de carga en América del Norte

Únase al Comité Consultivo Público Conjunto (CCPC) de la Comisión para la Cooperación Ambiental (CCA) en la reunión pública que se llevará a cabo el 12 de diciembre en Long Beach, California, para abordar el tema de la ecologización de las operaciones de transporte de carga en América del Norte.

Aprovechando el impulso generado a partir de la Declaración de Líderes de América del Norte respecto de la Alianza sobre Clima, Energía Limpia y Medio Ambiente, la reunión pública que el CCPC organiza en esta ocasión buscará analizar la forma de facilitar el comercio y el crecimiento económico en la región y, al mismo tiempo, reducir a largo plazo las emisiones de GEI relacionadas con el transporte de mercancías.

La participación en el foro del CCPC —abierta a todo el público— es gratuita. Se contará con interpretación simultánea en inglés, francés y español.

¡Participe en la discusión en línea!

Panel 1 – Greening North America’s freight: Reducing emissions and sharing best practices

As a key component of North America’s trade, freight transportation is important to support, while sustaining communities’ livelihood and health in a responsible way. With the movement of goods worldwide growing, emissions associated with freight transportation are a serious concern. This session will look at current initiatives for reducing the emissions from freight transportation in North America. Best practices and success stories will be discussed from both a private sector and governmental perspective.

Panel 2 North America’s ports: Greening operations to achieve climate commitments

As they act as the link between freight transportation on the continent and shipments moving to and from the rest of the world, North America’s ports are strategically positioned to lead environmental initiatives that support our countries’ climate commitments. Emissions reduction can be achieved through a highly integrated freight transportation system. This session will take a look at the outstanding work by port authorities and others to share best practices between the three countries.

Panel 3 Reducing emissions from goods movement via maritime transportation in North America

Maritime traffic is expected to grow significantly in the coming decades with the increase in the global trade of goods. Without policies to address air emissions from ships, there is the potential for this to become an important source of pollution in coastal communities relative to landside sources, affecting domestic air quality and public health. This session will look at existing and planned initiatives to address shipping emissions in the three countries.
