CleanFuture founder, John Thornton, will speak on “The Case for Freight Sustainability in Communities” at the Green Transportation Summit & Expo on April 11, 2017:
The Case for Freight Sustainability in Communities
Efficient goods movement is essential to establishing and sustaining economically viable communities. Yet local and regional planners must balance economic goals with livability and environmental concerns related to freight transportation in residential communities. This session will present innovative strategies for creating accessible freight networks that meet the needs of the communities of the future. Panelists will discuss solutions and best practices for addressing freight impacts at the local, state and regional levels.
