Governor Phil Murphy announced an investment of $100+ million in clean, equitable transportation projects that will improve air quality and reduce the effects of climate change while moving NJ towards 100% clean energy by 2050.
Leveraging proceeds from NJ’s participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and the Volkswagen Mitigation Trust Funds, this funding will bring electrification programs, equitable mobility projects, and electric charging infrastructure to environmental justice communities across the state.
Governor Murphy also signed Executive Order No. 221 establishing the Office of Climate Action and the Green Economy.
The office will focus on the interlocking priorities of addressing climate change, ensuring NJ’s clean energy future, and transitioning to a green economy while prioritizing equity and environmental justice.
