The mission of the California Cleaner Freight Coalition is to create transformational changes to the freight transportation system in California in order to protect the public’s health, clean the environment, and promote social justice and equity. We are a collaborative partnership of organizations committed to an inclusive membership, honest dialogue, respect for differences, and transparent decision-making. The Coalition includes grassroots environmental justice, environmental, science, and health groups.
The California Cleaner Freight Coalition advocates for the adoption of zero emission technologies everywhere possible and engagement of highly impacted communities in decisions that government agencies make on the freight transportation system. More specific goals are below.
Adopt zero-emission technology mandates, fleet purchase requirements, cleaner fuels standards, and cleaner engine standards.
Establish a framework for coordinating incentives and regulatory requirements for freight electrification.
Require the next generation of infrastructure that will be necessary to achieve widespread transportation electrification.
Protect public health and create job opportunities in communities that freight pollution heavily impacts.
