The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is considering how to eliminate tailpipe pollution from new cars. Transportation is the largest source of the emissions that are damaging our health and changing our climate, so this decision is a vital one for us and for future generations.
The proposal before CARB has many positive points, but needs to be strengthened in so that it benefits all Californians and keeps us in the forefront of clean transportation. Our ask is that CARB requires automakers to reach a target of 75% of their new vehicles being zero-emission in 2030, in order to maximize pollution reductions and the number of clean cars in the market. We are also asking that they include strong equity standards that ensure automakers increase affordability and access to ZEVs for disadvantaged communities, which face the worst impacts of air pollution and climate change.
