Sean Waters, vice president of product compliance and regulatory affairs for Daimler Trucks North America, will give the keynote address at Green Truck Summit 2020 on Tuesday, March 3. Waters will discuss the future of trucks powered by electricity, diesel fuel and hydrogen fuel cells.

Waters works with regulatory agency leadership on standard-setting initiatives for commercial vehicles, including medium- and heavy-duty engine emission certification, vehicle greenhouse gas regulations and safety compliance. He also oversees compliance and regulations related to Daimler Trucks North America’s export products.

He serves as chair of the Truck and Engine Manufacturers Association (EMA), where he provides advice, counsel, and recommendations on the scientific and technical aspects of programs related to commercial truck emissions control strategies and safety technologies. 

“Waters’ deep knowledge of vehicle emissions and greenhouse gas standards makes him an ideal keynote speaker for the Green Truck Summit,” says Doyle Sumrall, NTEA managing director. “We look forward to learning more about how regulatory standards affect what strategies and technologies companies are using on the path toward zero emissions.”

Waters was recently promoted after serving eight years as director of compliance and regulatory affairs. Prior to that, he was general corporate counsel for six years. Waters earned a bachelor’s degree in science from Willamette University and a law degree from University of Oregon.
