  Seminar on Environmentally Friendly Commute
~ The Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project is the answer? ~


PURPOSE
While transportation accounts for 20 to 30 % of total CO2 emissions in industrialized countries, most of them originate in cars. The CO2 emissions from the transportation sector are growing rapidly. Passenger cars contribute more than one third of total CO2 emissions from the transportation sector in the U.S., and is the largest source of CO2 emissions in the transportation sector. A passenger car is daily used for our commute, and through our individual efforts combined with effective policies, we can make difference in making it more environmentally friendly.
This seminar explores the future direction of how to make our commute more environmentally friendly through keynote speeches and exchanges of views by policy makers and transportation service providers from both U.S. and Japan.
