President Joe Biden joined Proterra CEO Jack Allen, Greenville Mayor Knox White, and the Proterra team last week for a virtual tour of Proterra's EV manufacturing facility in Greenville, South Carolina. The President affirmed his continued support for electrified transportation on the heels of announcing the American Jobs Plan, including historic investment in public transit and the goal for all U.S.-made buses to be zero-emissions by 2030.

Earth Week continued with the Leaders' Summit on Climate, where the president set the goal to cut the country's emissions in half by 2030, joined by Canada and other nations increasing their goals. Proterra CEO Jack Allen spoke on day two of the climate summit, reinforcing the importance of domestic EV manufacturing: "Electric vehicle technology is an opportunity for the United States to be at the leading edge of the innovations that will create good American jobs, modernize our nation's infrastructure, and help build a more just and resilient economy."
