Advancing High Road Standards in Zero-Emission Transportation
Today, the BlueGreen Alliance in collaboration with Gridworks is excited to release the report entitled, Advancing High Road Standards in Zero-Emission Transportation.
This report presents a framework for understanding the potential for high road economic development in zero-emission transportation and highlights workforce standards that may be adopted by employers and/or public agencies when developing program rules and procurement requirements. The framework establishes that taking the high road to zero-emission transportation will require that California employers and public agencies adopt and apply “high road standards” addressing three distinct and interrelated focus areas— workforce, equity, and environmental protection. This report contributes to a new direction for California, offering a high road standard framework for zero-emission transportation which would reverse the race to the bottom.
