The Zero Now Fund aims to seed and fund campaigns in cities and states throughout the U.S. to rapidly accelerate transport electrification. This year’s grant supports two campaigns: (a) Secure commitments from cities to fully electrify urban freight by 2030 and (b) advance electric vehicle policies in some states. This grant is a critical element of our strategy to accelerate the share of electric vehicles in the U.S. in order to decarbonize transportation. (Substrategy: Transport Electrification)
