“Vermont is pleased to join the International ZEV Alliance because of our commitment to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, and because we know that this goal can best be achieved by working in partnership with other governments as well as with the private sector. A major source of carbon pollution in Vermont comes from our transportation sector, and electric vehicles are the cleanest cars on our roads today. Accelerating the adoption of ZEVs by Vermonters is essential for meeting our state’s climate and clean energy goals, reducing air pollution, and insulating our economy from future volatility in oil prices.”

– Vermont Secretary of Natural Resources Deb Markowitz
