The Moving Forward Network has called on the EPA to improve air quality in some of the most polluted neighborhoods in the United States – those around ports, rail yards, and other freight facilities.  See the Zero Campaign for more information.

As explained in a newly released briefing paper by We Mean Business and The Climate Group, reducing black carbon, one of the primary constituents of diesel exhaust, will be a Triple Win – providing huge climate, health, and business benefits.

We Mean Business is a coalition of leading business and climate organizations which have joined forces to  support decisive action to tackle climate change and transition to a low carbon future.
