Environmental Freight Transportation: Opportunities and Challenges
Lisa M. Ellram, Ph.D., C.P.M., CMA, is the Rees Distinguished Professor of Supply Chain Management at the Farmer School of Business, Miami University in Oxford, OH. She has published in numerous top journals spanning a variety of disciplines and has presented her work in more than 25 countries.
This talk will help provide an understanding of how current environmental reporting structures unwittingly impede the focus on freight emissions. It will also explore how SmartWay, a voluntary private-public partnership that is part of the EPA has made important inroads in the awareness and education of environmental freight.
Dr. Ellram will both sound the alarm and suggest practical strategies and a new and unified vision to advance conservation in the present and future, as part of the Howard H. Baker Center's Energy and Environment Forum.
This event is free and open to the public. Guests may park in the Vol Hall Garage (1545 White Avenue Garage) at no cost by requesting a voucher from the Baker Center staff at the event.
