COP26: CALSTART announces landmark MOU 100% zero-emission new truck and bus sales by 2040
Representing a global response to climate emissions from trucks and buses and marking a turning point for the global transport sector, 15 countries agreed to work together toward 100% zero-emission new truck and bus sales by 2040. Under the new Global Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for Zero-Emission Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicles (ZE-MHDVs), participants are also setting an interim goal of 30% zero-emission new vehicle sales by 2030. In a coordinated effort top manufacturers and fleets like Scania, DHL, and Heineken are endorsing the MOU and agreeing to work collaboratively toward the same 2030 and 2040 goals.
