Why?

The climate crisis demands immediate action. Climate scientists from around the world have stated that we need to drastically reduce our carbon footprint. Emissions from the transportation sector are currently the largest source of carbon emissions in the United States. The urgency of this problem, and the clarity of the solution, necessitates swift action from everyone. Please do your part and take the pledge.

The Electric Driving Pledge

We the undersigned businesses, non-profits, and individuals pledge to vote for a healthy climate by committing that our next vehicle will be electric. We pledge not to purchase or lease any fossil fuel burning vehicles as long as there are viable electric alternatives. We make this commitment, for our business and/or personal use, for now and in the future.

We believe that the climate crisis demands immediate action. Climate scientists from around the world have stated that we need to drastically reduce our carbon footprint. Emissions from the transportation sector are currently the largest source of carbon emissions in the United States. The urgency of this problem, and the clarity of the solution, necessitates swift action from everyone.

We make this commitment as we see ongoing new EV options, longer all electric ranges, and the continuation of utility, state and federal incentives that help make the decision a good financial one for drivers. We can confidently say that NOW is the time to move beyond fossil fuels and the internal combustion engine. We join this public pledge to take a step closer to a future that can be powered all by clean energy and not dirty fossil fuels.

While there is a runway of progress yet to be made in other areas of the transportation sector, namely heavy duty trucks, we believe that starting with this commitment to moving all of our passenger and other “light duty” vehicles to all electric is the right place to start. As all electric trucks and heavy duty vehicles become available, we will support a complete switch to all electric transportation in homes, businesses and other organizations.

At SunCommon, we knew we wanted to reduce the environmental impact from our business’ transportation, so we started small with a couple EV’s two years ago. After this experience and doing our own analysis, it is crystal clear that we are ready to draw this line in the sand, moving away from fossil fuels wherever possible. Our climate demands it. Please join us!
