CALSTART’s Drive to Zero program leading global push for zero-emission commercial vehicles.

RIYADH — Multiple nations will announce a new commitment to collaboratively grow zero-emission commercial vehicle manufacturing and infrastructure at the 11th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM11). CALSTART’s Global Commercial Vehicle Drive to Zero program — which has brought about this new commitment and already enjoys support from more than 90 international government and industry leaders — will announce the details of the effort at the event entitled “Ten Years of EVI: Entering the Decade of the Electric Drive.” During the announcement, leaders from each nation will be invited to highlight their current and future plans to grow the market for electric and hydrogen vans, trucks and buses.

CEM11 is a gathering of energy ministers from around the world. This year’s event is hosted virtually by Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
