Chairman and CEO of Cummins Tom Linebarger will be the keynote speaker the annual Advanced Clean Transportation Expo at the Long Beach Convention Center in Southern California from May 9-12.
As an engine-maker and global power solutions leader, Cummins is focused on taking steps now to turn its sustainability pledge of carbon neutrality by 2050 into real-world products. Linebarger will offer his perspective on why the commercial transportation sector needs to utilize a portfolio of low carbon technologies to address climate change.
Linebarger’s keynote will take place on the ACT Expo main stage on May 11.
Cummins is helping customers reduce their carbon footprint as the transition to cleaner transportation solutions accelerates globally and the necessary infrastructure is established to support this transformation, ACT Expo officials said in a press release.
“We are seeing an across-the-board realignment toward clean commercial transportation, and as a long-standing market leader, Cummins is one of the voices that informs and drives forward our direction and progress,” said Erik Neandross, CEO at Gladstein, Neandross & Associates (GNA), the producers of ACT Expo. “We are excited to get an update on how Cummins’ path to ultra-low carbon technology and zero emissions is shaping its product roadmap today and over the next several decades.”
The four-day, fleet-focused agenda at ACT Expo will spotlight the acceleration taking place across the advanced transportation and clean energy sectors. Attendees will gain insights into the growing availability of low- and zero-emission vehicles and technologies; increased availability and consumption of renewable low carbon fuels; financial incentives, policies, regulations and other initiatives to rapidly expand clean fueling and charging infrastructure; the rapid acceleration in corporate sustainability commitments; and more.
The exhibit hall will showcase advanced vehicles spanning all weight classes, applications, and fuel types, including battery-electric, hydrogen fuel cell, propane, and natural gas vehicles, along with autonomous and connected technologies and renewable fuels.
