The Power of Partnership: How the PCC is Supporting the ZEV Transition

The Pacific Coast Collaborative (PCC) is a vital partnership for advancing regional cooperation and climate action and is making strides in the decarbonization of the transportation industry, including sharing the ambitious goal of ending new sales of  light-duty gas-powered vehicles by 2035. The PCC has successfully implemented the West Coast Electric Highway from Vancouver to San Diego, and is actively collaborating on interoperable charging technologies, a consistent user experience, and aligned infrastructure investments. Join us to hear from PCC partners on how cross-border collaboration is mitigating emissions, promoting economic growth, and driving action for a net-zero future. 

Investing in Net Zero: Opportunities for Funding Innovation and Industrial Decarbonization

Finding Common Ground: Making Climate Change a Bipartisan Priority

It is becoming increasingly challenging to deny that the world is experiencing the rapidly increasing impacts of a changing climate. However, the debate around how we take action to curb global warming continues to be a highly politicized issue. In most jurisdictions, we face a stark reality that bipartisanship is the only assured path to decarbonizing at scale and speed. Join this timely session to discuss how we can foster support for climate action across the political spectrum. 

Centering Indigenous Rights, Equity Partnerships and Indigenous Ways of Knowing for a Regenerative Future

For millennia, Indigenous Peoples have held a deeply intimate relationship with the natural world. Through this longstanding bond, they have amassed a wealth of knowledge, wisdom, and experience that are invaluable to creating a cooperative coexistence. Partnering with, and affirming the rights of, Indigenous Peoples are critical as we work to restore and protect the world around us. Join us for a thought-provoking conversation with Indigenous leaders as they explore the crucial role of Indigenous Rights, Equity Partnerships, and Indigenous Ways of Knowing in driving understanding and action for a more regenerative future.  

Transforming Transportation: Decarbonizing the Supply Chain

Transportation services represent a large share of many organizations’ total emissions and must be tackled to reach net zero. While rail and marine are efficient modes of transportation and have made strides to decarbonize, there is still much work to be done – and the journey cannot be made alone. At this interactive session, stakeholders from across the transportation supply chain will explore how we can collaborate to further optimize the efficiency of existing technologies and accelerate the development of new solutions that will transport us to a more sustainable future. 

The Critical Role of Critical Infrastructure: Enabling a Water Secure, Net-Zero Future

Critical infrastructure is designed to meet our essential service needs. Today, that not only means ensuring our utilities, power grids and transportation systems are reliable – they must also be sustainable. In this armchair dialogue we’ll unpack the role of infrastructure in enhancing water security and reducing emissions, as we transition to a more resilient, net-zero energy future.
