DETROIT, MI, JANUARY 17, 2012 – Global Automakers’ President and CEO Michael J. Stanton testified at today’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) joint public hearing regarding the proposed Greenhouse Gas (GHG)/Fuel Economy Standards for MY 2017 – 2025 light-duty vehicles.
Global Automakers and its members strongly support a comprehensive and harmonized national approach to reducing GHG emissions and improving fuel economy. “The proposed MY2017-2025 regulations bring us a step closer to one national program,” said Stanton. “We will continue to work with the agencies to refine the proposed regulations to make them simpler and more flexible, while retaining the intended energy and environmental benefits.”
The Association has been working with EPA, NHTSA and the State of California to create a program that meets the country’s environmental objectives, while providing manufacturers the flexibility and lead-time necessary to design and build advanced technology vehicles that will provide consumers a full range of vehicle choices.
The Association of Global Automakers represents international motor vehicle manufacturers, original equipment suppliers, and other automotive-related trade associations. We work with industry leaders, legislators, and regulators to create the kind of public policy that improves vehicle safety, encourages technological innovation, and protects our planet. Our goal is to foster a competitive environment in which more vehicles are designed and built to enhance Americans’ quality of life. For more information, visit www.globalautomakers.org.
