Reducing CO2 Emissions through Parking and Transportation Demand Management


People driving to and from most buildings produce more CO2 emissions than the buildings themselves. In order to meet our nation’s CO2 reduction targets, we can’t just build green buildings and invest in cleaner vehicles – we must reduce our Vehicle Miles Traveled. Learn how cities like San Francisco, Boulder and Chicago are reducing congestion, saving the planet and saving money through investments in the demand side of transportation economics.
