Third Way Statement on the White House Supply Chain Review Report
WASHINGTON — Third Way today released the following statement from Josh Freed, Senior Vice President of Third Way’s Climate and Energy Program:
"Building a resilient supply chain across several industries, especially batteries, is critical to the transition of the American economy and the path to net zero emissions,” said Josh Freed, Senior Vice President of Third Way’s Climate and Energy Program. “Yesterday’s release of the White House Supply Chain Review Report makes several recommendations on batteries which are essential for the transition to clean energy transportation. Creating conditions for these supply chains to flourish in the U.S. will establish the backbone of zero emissions vehicles.”
"The report’s recommendations – building batteries here in America to support electric vehicle manufacturing, providing incentives for the purchase of electric vehicles, and government support for charging infrastructure – are all included in the American Jobs Plan. Our recent automotive mapping project highlighted the importance of establishing a vibrant and growing battery manufacturing industry here in the U.S., supporting growth in electric vehicle manufacturing and over 4 million jobs in the industry. None of this is possible without pursuing the recommendations contained in this supply chain report issued by the White House."
