San Francisco, CA
CALSTART’s Global Climate Action Summit affiliate event “Drive to Zero” featured leaders from around the world to “Take Ambition to the Next Level.” It served as a moment to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of states, countries, regions, cities, companies, investors and citizens with respect to climate action and commitment to clean transportation and GHG reductions. It served as a launch pad for deeper worldwide commitments and accelerated action from countries—supported by all sectors of society—that can put the globe on track to prevent dangerous climate change and realize the historic Paris Agreement.
Transformational changes are happening across the world and across all sectors as a result of technological innovation, new and creative policies and political will at all levels. States and regions, cities, businesses and investors are leading the charge on pushing down global emissions by 2020, setting the stage to reach net zero emissions by midcentury.
During “Drive to Zero” HVIP leadership, Michelle Buffington with the California Air Resources Board spoke to the actions and commitments California is making to drive to zero through programs like HVIP.
