Overview
This grant is to support ECF’s launch of the Zero Emission Heavy Duty Vehicles in Europe campaign in 2019. The campaign will leverage the promising advances in zero-emission vehicle technology and the launch of several battery-electric commercial vehicle models this year in the European market. The campaign’s efforts will target key E.U. countries as well as the E.C., given widespread concerns over poor air quality from diesel-vehicle exhaust and the recent successful passage of the continent’s first fuel efficiency standards for heavy duty vehicles.

for general operating support  
The European Climate Foundation (ECF) was established in early 2008 as a major philanthropic initiative to help Europe foster the development of a low-carbon society and play an even stronger international leadership role in mitigating climate change. ECF advances policy in the areas of energy, transportation, buildings, low-carbon finance, industry, and energy efficiency. The organization works to develop policy at the local, national, and European Union level. They also support international efforts to mitigate carbon emissions through the United Nations and G20. (Substrategy: Philanthropic Capacity)
for defending the European transition beyond petroleum  
The European Climate Foundation’s transport program is a critical partner to our zero-emissions transportation strategy. Using a multifaceted approach that advances vehicle standards and charging infrastructure, highlighting the benefits to jobs and health, the foundation’s grantees will work to electrify all road transport on the continent by 2050. (Substrategy: Electrification)
