US Climate Alliance

US Climate Alliance

Alliance States are working together to accelerate the deployment of zero-emission vehicles as fast as possible.

Low Carbon Transportation Policy Development

U.S. Climate Alliance states, of which New Jersey is one, are committed to taking real, on the ground action that urgently addresses the climate challenge. In becoming an Alliance member, states commit to:

  • Implement policies that advance the goals of the Paris Agreement, aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 26-28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025
  • Track and report progress to the global community in appropriate settings, including when the world convenes to take stock of the Paris Agreement, and
  • Accelerate new and existing policies to reduce carbon pollution and promote clean energy deployment at the state and federal level.

US Climate Alliance on Transportation

Alliance States are working together to accelerate the deployment of zero-emission vehicles as fast as possible.  Together, they are exploring how to support consumer interest in ZEVs, , expand ZEV charging or refueling stations, and remove government barriers.  The U.S. Climate Alliance is also considering rules and requirements that reduce carbon emissions from transportation, as well as partnering directly with OEM’s to advance ZEV market penetration and education. Finally, U.S. Climate Alliance states also stand united in their opposition to the federal weakening of vehicle emission standards and are working together to advance the economic, environmental and public health benefits of cleaner cars.
