SAVE THE DATE: Public forum on Greening Freight Operations Across North America

Join the CEC Joint Public Advisory Committee meeting in-person in Long Beach, California, or online via webcast.

Every day in North America, heavy-duty trucks, massive cargo ships, and trains travel through a multi-modal transportation network to bring needed goods to consumers. Pollutant emissions from these freight operations can have adverse impacts on climate, human health, and the environment. How can these impacts be reduced or avoided?

About the CEC

The Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) was established in 1994 by the governments of Canada, Mexico and the United States through the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation, a parallel environmental agreement to NAFTA. As of 2020, the CEC is recognized and maintained by the Environmental Cooperation Agreement, in parallel with the new Free Trade Agreement of North America. The CEC brings together a wide range of stakeholders, including the general public, Indigenous people, youth, nongovernmental organizations, academia, and the business sector, to seek solutions to protect North America’s shared environment while supporting sustainable development for the benefit of present and future generations

The CEC is governed and funded equally by the Government of Canada through Environment and Climate Change Canada, the Government of the United States of Mexico through the Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales, and the Government of the United States of America through the Environmental Protection Agency.
