About the project
Many states, regions, cities and businesses have already recognised the benefits of the ZEVs, but now we need to urgently accelerate the transition to clean transport.
The ZEV Community enables best practice exchange between different levels of governments to support their ambitions and accelerate vertical integration of policies. By exchanging information and experiences, ZEV Community members can develop their knowledge and create the partnerships needed to succeed.
The ZEV Community is co-hosted by the Under2 Coalition and the ZEV Alliance, in partnership with C40 Cities and the U.S. Climate Alliance. All participants and members of these networks are invited to take part.

Why get involved
An opportunity to be a ZEV leader
Don't miss this exciting opportunity to design the future of clean transport within states and regions. Being part of the group positions participants as world leaders in ZEV adoption and offers the opportunity to demonstrate that leadership on a global scale.
Take inspiration from successful policy
Be inspired by the innovative policies that Under2 Coalition governments around the world are already taking to accelerate ZEV adoption and use those to deliver success within your jurisdiction.
A route to your ZEV commitments and beyond
Many members of the Under2 Coalition are already making ambitious commitments to transition to zero emission transportation. Being part of the ZEV Community project will help keep you on track to deliver these commitments and inspire you to go further.
Now is the time to act
The coming decade will be a defining one for the global ZEV market. Falling battery prices, increased ZEV commitments from automakers, and growing consumer acceptance may create a turning point in ZEV adoption. This means acting now can keep you ahead of the game.
Taking action on zero emissions vehicles
Our 'Taking action on zero emission vehicles' series profiles the ZEV policies, targets, and achievements of leading state and regional governments from round the world.

Read our six recommendations to increase ZEV ambition
Transport has a huge impact on climate change, accounting for a quarter (23%) of global emissions.
Whilst great progress has been made to decarbonise the sector, governments need to take more ambitious action to reach net zero.
Read our latest report to explore our catalogue of key policies to accelerate the uptake of zero emission vehicles.
