A Policy Framework for Climate Change and the Automotive Sector

A series of Observations earlier this year discussed the minutia of climate change policies and their relation to the automotive sector.  Building on this analysis of the issues, in this Observation we lay out a  potential broad framework for climate change policy that will meet the needs of both regulators and the industry.  Specifically in this month’s issue we cover the concerns of the industry in regard to the impact of climate change policies on manufacturing competitiveness and lay out a structure that will hopefully serve as a positive starting point for future conversations.
