Giving Compass’ Take:
• Los Angeles plan to follow The Zero Emission 2028 Roadmap 2.0 from the Transportation Electrification Partnership (TEP), aiming to have 30 percent of cars on the road be electric vehicles.
• What are the key challenges for reducing vehicle emissions? Government and private partners in Los Angeles are getting involved–how can donors help?
• Read more about The Zero Emission 2028 Roadmap 2.0.
Government and private partners in Los Angeles have released a plan to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) 25% above existing commitments by 2028 through electrification of the transportation sector. The Zero Emissions 2028 Roadmap 2.0 from the Transportation Electrification Partnership (TEP) sets a goal to have 30% of cars on the road be electric vehicles (EVs) by 2028, when Los Angeles will host the Olympics.
Beyond electrification, the roadmap says consumers should have more shared mobility options, especially in low-income and disadvantaged neighborhoods. The partners set a goal to convert 20% of all trips in single-occupancy vehicles to bikes, active transportation or zero-emission public transit.
The roadmap also identifies freight and goods movement as a major target, with plans to electrify heavy- and medium-duty trucks, and convert the 710 Freeway into a “zero emissions goods movement corridor.”
California is already a national leader in reducing vehicle emissions, with a plan that would put 5 million zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) on the roads by 2030.
