Cutting Carbs: A workshop for transportation professionals looking to cut some greenhouse gas emissions

December 3, 2008

Mark your calendars! On Wednesday, December 3rd, the Oregon Environmental Council (OEC) will host a workshop for transportation professionals. The goal: to build knowledge and skills for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the transportation system.

Who should attend? Planners, engineers and project managers who have a day-to-day impact on transportation plans and projects around Oregon. We welcome consultants and clients alike and encourage teams! The workshop will focus on information and skills that you can use to boost your organization’s resources and improve Oregon’s environment.

What will you learn? How climate change and transportation legislation in Salem, Olympia and Washington, D.C. could impact your work. What tools you can use to measure or estimate GHGs from transportation projects. Which strategies can make the most cost-effective dent in GHGs. We’ll explore the leading edge in these areas, hear from the innovators, and work on how you can make a difference.

If you would like to be on OEC’s mailing list for this event, please send an email to Chris Hagerbaumer at Look for more information in October.

Brought to you by: CH2M Hill, David Evans & Associates, HDR, Metro, ODOT, Port of Portland, Portland Office of Sustainable Development, TriMet, and URS.
