The federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Friday green-lit(Opens in a new window) California’s plans to require half of all heavy-duty trucks sold in the state to be electric by 2035.

The move, which California’s Governor Gavin Newsom described as a “big deal for climate action”, means the state will be the world’s first government to require zero-emission trucks.

On Friday the EPA approved two Clean Air Act waivers, including the Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) rule. The Clean Air Act of 1970 banned states from establishing their own emissions standards, but an exception was granted for California because it was dealing with smog when the legislation was passed.

To establish new emission standards, California must ask the EPA for a waiver, which if approved, allows other states to do the same.
