An "All In" Pathways to 2030: Transportation Sector Emission Reduction Potential

April 08, 2022

Key Takeaways:


Through an “All-In” climate strategy integrating legislative initiatives from Congress, regulatory and other actions from the Executive Branch, and enhanced policy leadership from non-federal actors, the United States can deliver its ambitious climate target (NDC) of 50-52% reductions by 2030 relative to 2005 levels.


Currently adopted policy measures account for 19%—or nearly 350 million tons of CO2 (MtCO2)—of the emissions reductions needed. These measures include existing federal fuel economy and emissions standards, state and local policies and incentives, market force projections, and Congress’s recently passed Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA).
