The purpose of these regulations is to collect information on company truck fleets to assess the suitability of implementing the use of zero-emission vehicles in multiple use cases and to help develop future strategies on how to accelerate the zero-emission truck market in Massachusetts. The regulations will support future measures to reduce emissions of oxides of nitrogen, fine particulate matter, other criteria pollutants, toxic air contaminants, and greenhouse gases from vehicles.
