Overview
This grant would support the European Climate Foundation’s transportation program. In the next year, the European Climate Foundation and its grantees would work to ensure that the European Parliament sets the right direction for more advanced carbon emissions standards for cars and trucks, speed up the deployment of electric vehicles, and better monitor shipping emissions. The grant would also support ECF’s work to encourage the E.U. to set standards to reduce the carbon intensity of fossil fuels, and ensure sustainability of bio-fuels. Both standards for vehicles and fuels have the potential to set a global example of decarbonization of transportation.
