Sustainability in Transportation: Making It Count

Thursday, January 14 8:00 AM- 12:00 PM ET
Henrik Gudmundsson, CONCITO
Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Transportation and Sustainability (ADD40)



This workshop introduces key concepts from a new book,  Sustainable Transportation: Indicators, Frameworks, and Performance Management, to help participants critically review and analyze the challenges of using indicators to promote sustainability. The aim is to move beyond simple prescriptions and one-size-fits-all lists of performance measures and to explore how an understanding of frameworks and indicator applications can make sustainability count.
