California’s Air Quality/Climate Objectives 2 Meet 2032 federal ambient ozone air quality standards. Achieve a 80 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 levels by 2050. Minimize near-source exposure to communities located near freight hubs. Achieve up to a 50 percent reduction in fossil fuel use by cars and trucks by 2030.
Air Quality Needs for Future Freight System 3 Increased efficiency at the equipment, sector, and system levels. Zero tailpipe emissions everywhere possible, and near-zero emissions with renewable fuels everywhere else.
Outcome of 2014 Freight Outreach 4 Met with over 220 stakeholders and the outcome was: Develop ARB’s vision for a clean freight system. Shift from coordinating to integrating the State’s freight transport planning.
