What happened

The Zero Emission Transportation Association (ZETA), an association of over 40 major businesses across the transportation and power sectors, unveiled its federal policy platform with 34 policy proposals to achieve 100% EV sales by 2030.

ZETA’s policy platform includes vehicle pollution standards and legislative priorities for manufacturing and infrastructure investments. The platform also includes recommendations to accelerate the market for zero-emission medium and heavy-duty vehicles, which are urgently needed to reduce climate and air pollution.

Our rating

Business support for bold public policy that accelerates clean transportation and vehicle electrification is critical in reducing air pollution and achieving large-scale greenhouse gas reductions. We are excited to see ZETA introduce a robust strategy and policy agenda to achieve its ambitious goal of 100% EV sales by 2030.

As the Biden Administration gets underway, we look to ZETA, major automakers, and other business leaders in the transportation sector to support strong policies needed to swiftly transition to a zero-emission fleet.

According to our expert…

It’s encouraging to see strong business support for policies that will help to realize the goal of 100% EV sales by 2030. With a host of upcoming opportunities this year to accelerate the transition to EVs, we look to ZETA to follow through with concrete advocacy to push those policies across the finish line.
