What kind of mileage and emission standards make sense for Americans and our economy? That’s the question being decided in Washington D.C. right now. As we release this report, the Obama Administration is drawing up new fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions standards for passenger vehicles in model years 2017-2025.

Ceres, a national coalition of investors and public interest organizations, brings a unique perspective to the debate: we’re focused on the economic impacts of strong standards.

Over time, it has become increasingly clear that it is in the interest of consumers, workers, investors, automakers and the broader economy to adopt strong fuel economy/GHG standards.
