At COP26, the Zero Emissions Vehicle Declaration was launched by a leadership group of more than 100 countries, businesses, and organizations committed to driving forward a transition to a climate-neutral transportation sector. Signatories to the Declaration signed up to the global pledge to ensure that all new car and van sales be zero emission by 2040 globally, and by 2035 in leading markets. This level of ambition is critical to avoiding the worst impacts from climate change. In addition, a transition to Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) will help tackle air pollution, reduce oil dependency, and deliver new jobs.
Since COP26, momentum in the shift to ZEVs has only accelerated. New signatories continue to join the Declaration, and the global ZEV market continues to grow at an exponential pace.
This partnership between the United Kingdom, the Climate Champions, the International Council on Clean Transportation, and the Drive Electric Campaign will build on the effort that was launched at COP26. We will act to not only get sign-on from new stakeholders across the globe but also to leverage our extensive network to support those do.
The ZEV Declaration is THE public forum for those who support the transition of the global car and van market to ZEVs. We encourage you to join us today.
