President Biden marked Earth Day on April 22 by announcing a new target for the U.S. to achieve a 50-52 percent reduction in economy-wide net greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution by 2030 when compared to a 2005 baseline. Biden made the announcement during the Leaders Summit on Climate, where Biden also fulfilled his promise to rejoin the Paris Agreement.
In his announcement, Biden stressed the link between climate and jobs. “Within our climate response lies an extraordinary engine of job creation and economic opportunity ready to be fired up,” he said. “That’s why I’ve proposed a huge investment in American infrastructure
This post highlights upcoming opportunities for stakeholder engagement related to regulatory initiatives to address transportation emissions, which include Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) stakeholder meetings and a public comment period on the Transportation and Climate Initiative
Jaguar Land Rover (Whitley, U.K.) is preparing for future electric vehicles (EVs) with advanced lightweight composite research that the company says will help deliver increased range, greater performance and a more dynamic drive.
The Tucana project is a four year program with a goal to make the U.K. a world leader in low-carbon technology, by preventing 4.5 million tonnes of CO2 emissions between 2023 and 2032. This is expected to be achieved by accelerating mainstream use of EVs and lighter vehicles for decreased tailpipe emissions and reduced energy consumption of electrified powertrains.
One of President Joe Biden’s first acts as president was to sign a “Buy American” executive order that seeks to overhaul the federal government’s fleet of cars and trucks with electric vehicles (EVs) assembled in the U.S. And the U.S. Postal Service in February announced a new 10-year contract to overhaul its delivery truck fleet with a mix of EVs and traditional vehicles.
Replacing the government’s gas and diesel vehicles is a laudable goal, and one that could be a boon to the automotive industry. Indeed, just days after Biden’s announcement, American automaker General Motors announced its alignment with the

WASHINGTON (AP) — A coalition of automakers has told the Biden administration it would agree to raise mileage standards to reduce tailpipe emissions but with tradeoffs and at rates lower than those brokered by California with five other car manufacturers.
