    (May 07, 2021) - Across the OEM motor vehicle after-sales space, transportation is a significant spend – approximately 7-8%1 of sales. Further, the transportation sector has now surpassed the power sector as the largest emitter of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the United States, responsible for over 29%2 of total emissions within the U.S., and 24%3 globally. This trend largely is driven by the growth of e-commerce, international and domestic shipping, and other activities related to globalization.

    Many of the OEMs participating in Carlisle’s North American Parts Benchmark have released corporate statements committing themselves to reducing their climate impact, yet many organizations are early in the development of plans to address the greenhouse gas emissions associated with their transportation footprint. Fortunately, meaningful pathways to reduce transportation emissions are taking hold.
