Moving California Forward: Zero and Low-Emission Goods Movement Pathways - Full Report

The California Cleaner Freight Coalition -- including NRDC and at least 20 other organizations working towards transformational changes to the freight transportation system in California to protect the public's health, clean the environment, and promote social justice and equity -- commissioned this report to compare conventional diesel-based transportation to lower emission and advanced technology alternatives for both shorter and longer trips. The analysis helps answer a key question for those planning the future of the state's freight system: what are the alternatives to conventional diesel vehicles that offer the greatest air quality, health and climate benefits, measured in reduced emissions of particulate matter (PM2.5), oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and greenhouse gases (GHG)?
