Solutions for
climate change
and air quality

Now’s the time to adopt cleaner fuels and energy sources for our environment

Your fuel and energy choices make a difference—for yourself, your community and your world.

Fossil fuels are a leading source of air pollution that can lead to lung disease, respiratory illness, and premature death. Criteria pollutants, such as particulate matter, ground-level ozone and other toxins that originate from transportation and energy sources, harm our health and environment. Common greenhouse gas emissions, such as carbon dioxide and methane, also contribute to climate change, a serious threat to human health.

There is no silver bullet or single solution to reduce our exposure to harmful air pollutants. That’s why the American Lung Association’s Department of Clean Air Initiatives encourages multiple alternative fuels and energy sources to address these challenges through our award-winning Clean Air Choice® program.

Now’s the time to learn more about better choices for cleaner air and a healthier future.

Clean Air Choice can help.

Clean Air Choice: Your resource for healthier fuel options

American Lung Association launched the Clean Air Choice program in 1999 to educate consumers about how fuel and energy choices affect the environment and air quality.

We help retailers, fleets, and stakeholders promote cleaner fuel and energy options through customized education and outreach programs in collaboration with public and private partners.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public to attend one or more virtual public engagement sessions it is hosting between May 17-26, 2021 to gather input about Minnesota’s EV strategic plan. There will be three general sessions and three that dive deeper on specific topics. All sessions will consider the risks, challenges and opportunities for EVs to create a more equitable transportation system in the region. Anyone can attend ANY of these sessions to provide feedback. MnDOT is especially seeking input from members of Black, Indigenous, People of Color and low-income communities.

MnDOT's 2017 Sustainability Report sets the goal of reducing GHG emissions from Minnesota's transportation sector by 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2025. Light-duty vehicles generate the majority of transportation GHGs in the state. While federal fuel economy standards will lower emissions in the future, electrifying light duty vehicles is an important strategy to meet [...]
