As global climate summit COP27 meets this week, Climate Break has partnered with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) on a series of episode about CARB’s approach to climate policy and its work with international stakeholders advancing ambitious transportation decarbonisation goals. Today, hear from Cristiano Facanha, who leads the Drive to Zero program at CARB partner CalSTART, describe the transition strategy CARB and CalSTART developed for California’s commercial vehicles and how they’re bringing it to the world’s stage via the Drive to Zero initiative.
In the first episode of our series highlighting the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) work with international partners on sustainable mobility, we’re talking to Lennart Nout, an urban mobility specialist at the Dutch sustainability mobility firm Mobycon, about why inaccessible training keeps cities from designing biking and walking friendly cities — and how the Transportation Decarbonisation Alliance, a coalition including CARB and Mobycon — hopes to change that with the Call to Action they’ve brought to COP27.
The 26th UN Climate Change Conference was taken place in November 2021 in Glasgow. After 13 days of intense negotiations, 200 countries reached an agreement on the Glasgow Climate Pact, which will accelerate climate action this decade and completed the Paris Rulebook. This week, listen to Ethan Elkind and Ken Alex, the Executive Producers of Climate Break, about the major outcomes of the conference.
