Emissions Reduction Requirements

Recognizing the impact of carbon-emitting fuels on climate change and seeking to foster economic growth in the state by spurring technological innovation, New Jersey established greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets. These targets include stabilization of GHG emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2020 and reduction of GHG emissions to 80% below 2006 levels by 2050. To reach this goal, the New Jersey Department of Treasury will develop specific targets and strategies for reducing GHG emissions by reducing the state motor fleet's fuel consumption.
