Global Automakers' members strongly support and are aggressively pursuing innovative ways to reduce CO2 emissions to protect the environment and lessen the nation’s reliance on fossil fuels. Our members are creating alternatives to petroleum by investing in advanced technology vehicles powered by hydrogen fuel cells, clean diesel, electricity, sustainable biofuels, and natural gas. Our members account for 82 percent of the U.S. hybrid market and offer the only hydrogen fuel-cell and natural gas-powered vehicles available to consumers in America. This year, one of the Association’s members is bringing the first zero-emission mass-market vehicle to American consumers.

Global Automakers advance our member companies’ environmental goals by working with lawmakers to provide manufacturers the lead-time to design and build the type of advanced technology vehicles needed while continuing to provide consumers with a full range of vehicle choices.

Traverse City, Michigan hosted two conferences on the auto industry last week: one that I read about, and one that I attended.

The one that I read about laid bare differences among regulators and the auto industry about the possibility of reaching ambitious goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, commonly expressed in miles per gallon figures.

The one I attended revealed some interesting, and possibly productive, areas of agreement among regulators and the auto industry as to how we might work together to achieve our policy goals.
