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