Corporate Transportation Decarbonization Initiatives

The transportation sector is ripe for corporate climate-related action.  David Gardiner and Associates (DGA) has developed a new Corporate Transportation Decarbonization Tracker and Report which aim to help policymakers, manufacturers, transportation and fuel providers, and other stakeholders better understand corporate initiatives related to transportation emissions reduction and electric vehicle (EV) expansion. Over time, DGA will expand this research to include additional companies.

Accelerating Transportation Emission Reductions and Electric Vehicle Adoption: An Analysis of Retailer Commitments.

The report finds that there is a significant opportunity for retail corporations to advance EV adoption and summarizes major findings from data on 149 retailers’ vehicle electrification and transportation emissions reduction activities.

The report highlights specific retailers’ bold commitments and innovative practices and also describes high-level actions and policy recommendations that can be taken by the retail industry, policymakers, and others to scale up EV adoption and EV infrastructure deployment.
