This is part 2 of a 2-part series on Decarbonization and Electrification of the Transportation. For Part 1 by the Climate Institute, see here

BMO Radicle experts Christine VanDerwill, Partnerships Manager; Cooper Robinson, Innovation Lead; and Brad Neff, Director, Innovation, Low Carbon Fuels, discuss opportunities to reduce emissions in the transportation sector.

“I think these [low-carbon fuel] programs are one piece of a bigger picture in the glob
al transition. Which is the convergence of climate and finance treating carbon emissions more and more like a currency to be managed, and traded, and valued. And ultimately that's the motivation: these are good business decisions.”—Cooper Robinson

In this episode:

  • Traditional ways of regulating greenhouse gas emissions and why the transportation sector poses a particular challenge 

  • How low-carbon fuel programs work and aim to reduce the carbon intensity of transportation fuels

  • •Low-carbon fuel programs that apply to businesses in Canada and the United States

  • How EV infrastructure has grown under California's low carbon fuel standard
