Energy & Environment

Global Automakers' members strongly support and are aggressively pursuing innovative ways to reduce CO2 emissions to protect the environment and lessen the nation’s reliance on fossil fuels. Our members are creating alternatives to petroleum by investing in advanced technology vehicles powered by hydrogen fuel cells, clean diesel, electricity, sustainable biofuels, and natural gas. Our members account for 82 percent of the U.S. hybrid market and offer the only hydrogen fuel-cell and natural gas-powered vehicles available to consumers in America. This year, one of the Association’s members is bringing the first zero-emission mass-market vehicle to American consumers.

Global Automakers advance our member companies’ environmental goals by working with lawmakers to provide manufacturers the lead-time to design and build the type of advanced technology vehicles needed while continuing to provide consumers with a full range of vehicle choices.

WASHINGTON, DC, MARCH 15, 2017 –“We welcome the Trump Administration's decision to return the greenhouse gas standards’ midterm evaluation back to the process that was agreed to in 2012.

This week Global Automakers formally requested that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) withdraw the decision it made in the final days of the Obama Administration on future greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) standards for motor vehicles.   We’ve said for some time that we’d be making the request, but it’s still worth reviewing why we did.
