July 30, 2020 – Zero Emissions Zones

Our topic for this episode is Zero Emissions Zones, which are city regions where there are restrictions on the use of fossil fuel vehicles. The most famous example is London; but other cities are implementing ZEZs. Host Nick Bettis talks with Lightning CEO Tim Reeser and with our special guest Michael Marx, director of CorpEthics. Michael can be contacted at the website. We discuss how zero emissions zones can accelerate the adoption of electric commercial vehicles, and how companies and citizens can press for ZEZs in their own cities.
