Mission Statement

Evolve Houston is a coalition of sustainability-minded civic, business, and academic leaders who seek to accelerate clean transportation through electrification. Collaborating with government, academic, private industry, and community leaders, our goal is to improve regional air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the Greater Houston area.

Description

Inspired by a deep commitment to the health and well-being of all local residents, Mayor Sylvester Turner has championed bold action to improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Houston. Recognizing transportation as a key opportunity area, Mayor Turner, in Houston’s Climate Action Plan, called for the creation of a public-private partnership to accelerate Electric Vehicle (EV) adoption throughout the region. He engaged local leaders to join him in this effort, thus laying the foundation of Evolve Houston, a coalition of sustainability-minded civic, business, and academic leaders who want to accelerate clean transportation through electrification.

Evolve Houston convenes government, academic, private industry, and community leaders to accelerate EV adoption and deliver real benefits to society through the shared values of environment, economy, equity, and building forward. Collaborating with its stakeholder group, Evolve Houston is working to improve air quality and reduce GHG emissions throughout the Greater Houston area.

As a region that has been called the Energy Capital of the World, Houston shoulders a responsibility to lead in new energy technologies, such as electrified transportation, to innovate, and to demonstrate new ways of advancing the health and prosperity for people in all walks of life.
