The PNW Need Clean Fuel Standards to Curb and Reduce Pollution

Transportation fuels are responsible for nearly half of our climate and harmful air pollution in the Pacific Northwest: 46% of Washington’s greenhouse gas emissions and 36% of Oregon’s. Without clean fuel standards, consumers of the PNW don't have clean fuel options that support local economic development in rural communities and improve public health.

Nature and Context

Clean Fuels Standards have proved to be an effective means of reducing carbon and air pollution from the transportation sector. They allow consumers to choose cleaner fuels that support local economic development in rural communities and improve public health. Clean Fuel Standards work by requiring oil refineries and importers to reduce the carbon intensity of their fuels, providing more low-carbon fuels and electricity to fuel our transportation system.
