Low Carbon Fuel Standards: Policy Principles

In order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transportation, we must use a variety of tools to help bring cleaner technologies to the market. One important tool in this effort is low carbon fuel (LCF) policies, which provide an increasing range of low carbon fuel alternatives. LCF policies can reduce greenhouse emissions in the transportation sector and limit their impacts on consumers and the environment.

Consumer Reports has outlined a set of policy principles for the creation and implementation of low carbon fuel standards.
