Overview
The Natural Resources Defense Council’s biggest strengths are its broad advocacy base and technical and legal expertise. This grant would support its transport program to reduce environmental and health impacts from oil use in vehicles and fuels. The program’s main goals in the next two years are to promote and advance stronger fuel economy standards, cleaner technologies for mobility in cities, and cleaner freight policies in the United States. NRDC is part of the Charge Ahead California campaign, a coalition of organizations supporting the implementation of the Zero Emissions Vehicle mandate in California, aiming to get 1.5 million electric cars, buses, and trucks on the road by 2025, and building the trajectory for an 80 percent carbon reduction by 2050.
