Why are EV’s Important?
State’s Sustainability Efforts
Transportation emissions account for 35% of green house gas (GHG) emissions. Converting the fleet of gasoline powered cars to zero-emission transportation technologies is essential to achieve California’s renewable energy, air quality and climate change goals. By executive orders of the last two governors, California has an objective to achieve 5 million zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) by 2030; 250,000 electric vehicle charging stations; and, by 2035 all new cars and passenger trucks sold in the state must be ZEVs. These important state goals fit squarely within the sustainability mission of the SBCCOG to lower GHG emissions for the region so that the South Bay can meet its climate action goals. Information and resources found in this section of the website describe the SBCCOG’s role, initiatives and resources as an advocate for these important sustainability goals.
