The Road Forward is an initiative of the asphalt pavement industry, with the committed support of NAPA staff, members, and partners, to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. By accepting this challenge, we are choosing to work toward solving tomorrow’s problems today. The multi-year initiative will ensure long-term viability and prosperity of our industry and the diverse communities we serve coast to coast.

Sequestered, the fun game that helps you learn climate change terminology!


Thanks to the Climate Stewardship Task Force for envisioning The Road Forward.
