WHY CLEAN TRANSPORTATION?
The transportation sector is Connecticut’s largest source of carbon dioxide pollution, contributing over 40% of the state’s greenhouse gas emissions. It also contributes to poor air quality impacting our cities and towns which leads to asthma and other health problems. To meet legal mandates established in the state’s Global Warming Solutions Act, climate pollution caused by transportation must be significantly reduced over the next 8 years. The Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) can help get us there.
