Administration Releases Blueprint for Decarbonization

Reports that the transportation sector is responsible for one-third of all greenhouse gas emissions.

President Biden’s administration released the U.S. National Blueprint for Transportation Decarbonization this week, the in-depth outline of the strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector. Co-written by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Departments of Energy, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development, the 88-page document provides extensive research from both the public and private sectors to provide the blueprint for potential future policies to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

“Achieving our goals will require close cooperation with industry, local, regional, state, and Tribal governments, non-profits, and other stakeholder groups, as well as allies around the world,” the departments stated in the document. “With bold, coordinated actions, together we can build a clean transportation system that is clean, safe, secure, accessible, affordable, and equitable, for all Americans to help create a more sustainable future for generations to come.”
