The 50x50 Commission – a group of business, government, and civil society leaders – has been working to develop a pathway to capitalize on the opportunities of a rapidly changing industry by setting an ambitious goal of cutting the U.S. transportation sector’s energy use by 50% by 2050 while meeting future mobility needs. On September 26, the Commission will unveil its full suite of policy recommendations on Capitol Hill to encourage policymakers to better prepare for the coming transformation.

We are excited to announce our confirmed keynote speaker Mayor William Peduto, City of Pittsburgh.

Join us for the keynote addresses and a panel discussion with members of the Commission to hear their perspectives on the key shifts in the industry, why their organization is participating in the Commission, and the importance of cohesive policies in securing the Commission's vision of the transportation future.
