A global campaign
The Drive Electric Campaign partners with NGOs, foundations, and coalitions, and works closely with governments and businesses around the world.
“We knew big heavy trucks could go electric, but would they be deployed fast enough to address the climate challenge? Drive Electric partners supported research on solutions and civil society demanded cleaner air and better jobs, leading to the world’s first regulation requiring an aggressive transition to zero-emission trucking in California. Now we can take this critical policy global.”
“We are on the cusp of an unprecedented market transformation as zero-emission commercial vehicles quickly move to production scale. We need to increase the pace, ambition, and regional coordination to meet our climate and air quality goals. That’s why CALSTART and Drive to Zero are proud to partner with the Drive Electric Campaign toward stronger alignment of targets for zero-emission commercial vehicles across industry and governments worldwide.”
“Europe, by learning from others like California and China, has become a leader in decarbonization of transportation, thanks to its ambitious regulations. Now it is up to us to share the European experience with the world because the transport sector won’t stop damaging the climate until oil-powered vehicles are phased out everywhere. The Drive Electric Campaign is an important step to realizing this target.”
“A key achievement over the past year was using the high ambition set by Drive Electric to shape the targets for the “Race To Zero - Breakthroughs” and “RouteZero” initiatives that are driving ambition for leading markets and companies in the run-up to COP26. This type of collective ambition escalation only happens when groups invest in pragmatic collaboration and integration of goals and strategies.”
“The Drive Electric Campaign shares Shakti’s and our Electric Mobility Initiative vision to accelerate the electrification of all road transportation to achieve complete decarbonization of the sector. A global campaign helps us reach more like-minded funders and partners with whom we can collaborate.”
“The accelerated shift to electric vehicles of all types is critical to meet our climate goals. Our Race-To-Zero campaign is working closely with the Drive Electric campaign to set bold ‘breakthrough’ goals and align on high ambition with business, investors, governments, and civil society. Working together, we’re confident that we can secure a tipping point soon when EVs will increasingly dominate the market, providing massive benefits for the climate.”
