Global EV Alliance calls for action ahead of COP21
Climate change is already having a devastating impact on our planet, causing glaciers to melt, sea levels to rise, harsher droughts and heat waves, and dangerous weather. This has led to significant loss of life, impacts on human health, and environmental destruction, which will only get worse in the coming years. We must take action now to mitigate the effects of greenhouse gas emissions.
Transportation accounts for 24% of global CO2 emissions, with road vehicles accounting for nearly 75% of that. We must shift from burning fossil fuels to vehicles running on clean, renewable electricity. This has never been more urgent than it is today.
We urge leaders to commit to 100% of new light-duty vehicles being powered by electricity. All-electric vehicles do not have a tailpipe and do not emit dangerous greenhouse gases, making them much healthier for our communities and our planet.
And show your support!
