Massachusetts can still meet its ambitious climate goals, but not without transforming how we move around and how we build our communities—the two areas of focus for Barr’s Mobility portfolio. We see these two as mutually reinforcing. We can’t provide enough low-carbon travel without good transportation options, and we can’t provide enough good transportation options without well-designed communities.
