Automakers and suppliers part of DOE Better Climate Challenge

The US Department of Energy (DOE) announced a commitment from more than 90 companies and organizations to reduce their Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon emissions by 50% by 2030 through DOE’s Better Climate Challenge. This national public-private partnership calls on organizations across the country to set portfolio-wide greenhouse gas reduction targets and share their innovative solutions and best practices with partners and across industries.

DOE will provide technical assistance and convene peer-to-peer exchanges to facilitate solution sharing across facilities and fleets.

Any organization with a portfolio of buildings/plants/housing in the US is welcome to join. Among the inaugural partners in the Better Climate Challenge are vehicle makers and suppliers, including:
