Shifting to electric vehicles and sustainable fuels

The problem: Global transportation harms our climate, accounting for roughly one-quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions. The pollution from transportation powered by fossil fuels also harms our health, causing lung disease, heart problems and more than 6 million premature deaths a year.

What we’re doing about it: We’re driving the transition to electric vehicles, sustainable aviation fuels and zero-emission shipping, prioritizing the communities most burdened by pollution. We advocate the use of cleaner fuels everywhere — to save lives and strengthen the global economy.
