CARB’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard is Working

California’s transportation sector is responsible for nearly half of the state’s greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). Yet, increased use of low carbon, renewable fuels can significantly reverse the impact these vehicles are having on our environment. The Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) is making this progress possible.

The LCFS provides a tech-neutral approach to invest in a range of fossil fuel alternatives, including biofuels and infrastructure for the adoption of zero-emission vehicles. 

Since its inception, the LCFS has displayed 25 billion gallons of petroleum with renewable fuels. Additionally, in 2022 alone, the LCFS was responsible for reducing 26 million metric tons of GHG, the equivalent of taking 5.8 million gas powered cars off the road.

As the California Air Resources Board (CARB) considers changes to the LCFS, it is important to ensure the program remains an effective tool for achieving GHG reductions to improve air quality and yield public health benefits.

That’s why CRTA has joined with over 30+ clean fuel companies and organizations to ask CARB to support a strong LCSF. California can’t reach its 2030 carbon reduction goals without it.
