A strategic international initiative designed to catalyze the development and adoption of advanced technology MHDVs, Drive to Zero will showcase innovative zero-emission transport and transit efforts by leaders such as IKEA, FedEx, the Government of Quebec, and City of New York, and will unveil a new global coalition of partner organizations.
