Project Summary / Description:
The transport sector is responsible for 8 billion tons of carbon each year which accounts for 29% of total carbon emissions making it the largest contributor. Road travel accounts for three-quarters of transport emissions. Most of this comes from passenger vehicles ‚ cars and buses ‚ which contribute 45.1%.

Impact on Underrepresented Groups:
Women are more vulnerable to the effects of climate change than men in many of these situations, partly because they make up the majority of the world's poor and are more reliant on natural resources that are endangered by climate change. They also encounter social, economic, and political obstacles that impede their ability to cope. Women account for 80% of those displaced by climate change due to natural disasters. In the corporate world, women earn 24% less than males and hold only 25% of administrative and managerial jobs - 32% of organizations have no women in senior management positions. Only 22% of seats in single or lower houses of national parliament are held by women. Within the Carbon Neutral Initiative ranks, 2 of the 3 highest positions are held by women. We support women in STEM as such we also have plans to favor employment of women. The Carbon Neutral Initiative is focused on creating climate-resilient technology. Our recent projects support lower carbon emissions. Carbin emission plays a major role in climate change. With our latest projects the Carbon Attack Filter and the D30 fuel, our goals are aligned with the following SDG‚ : 7, 8, 9 and 13. The Carbon Attack Filter‚ aim is to reduce emissions within the transportation sector with an internal approach of controlling or filtering the carbon that is emitted from vehicles. The D30 Synthetic Fuel aims to not only reduce emissions by creating a cleaner fuel but also create energy security in developing countries. Carbon emissions from the transportation sector affects reproductive health of men and boys pregnant women and unborn male babies are especially at risk of respiratory diseases and reproductive disorders as a result of exposure to transportation exhaust emissions. Transportation accounted for the greatest part (29%) of total U.S. GHG emissions in 2019, according to the Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks 1990‚Äì2019. Transportation end-use sector emissions come from a variety of sources, including automobiles, trucks, commercial aeroplanes, and railroads, among others. However, it is noted that approximately 58% of the emissions within the transportation sector is due to light-duty vehicles. Innovations have the potential to not only lower emissions but reduce these natural disasters that result in death and destruction. Economic development has also taken a major hit from climate change. By establishing energy security and creating a sense of sustenance within an industry that accounts for around 40 per cent of the world energy mix, economic resources can be allocated to other issues that each country faces.
