CARB Supports EPA’s Final Determination of GHG Standards


The California Air Resources Board (CARB) says it welcomes the EPA Administrator’s determination that the adopted light-duty vehicle greenhouse gas (GHG) emission standards for model years (MY) 2022 – 2025 are appropriate. In 2012, CARB agreed to a national program based on federal adoption of GHG reduction standards as stringent as California’s, and the EPA’s action advances this national program.  This final determination is also timely and important as CARB prepares to consider its own mid-term review of the standards in March.

“This progress is the result of an unprecedented national partnership between California and U.S. EPA,” said CARB Chair Mary D. Nichols. “We expect that progress to continue under the adopted regulations and we look forward to working together to plan for 2025 and beyond.”
