 A cohort of 30 energy and environment groups urged Biden to implement long-term vehicle emissions standards to spur the transition to EVs and reach a net-zero emissions economy by 2050. The groups pushed Biden to direct EPA to set long-term emissions standards by the end of 2022 that are not “undermined by complex credit schemes that reward automakers for reductions on paper that aren’t matched in real world performance.” EPA is currently considering near-term standards that go through model year 2026.

The signatories include Ceres, the Natural Resources Defense Council, Union of Concerned Scientists, Sierra Club, Consumer Federation of America and others. Read their letter here.
