As 2021 comes to a close, we’d like to take a moment to reflect on Coltura’s accomplishments this past year. We’re very proud of our work advancing the gasoline phaseout movement and are especially grateful to our supporters who have made this progress possible.
We have an ambitious agenda planned for 2022 and are excited about the opportunities that lay ahead to further our efforts to influence gasoline phaseout policy.
Highlights from 2021:
Provided analysis on Governor Inslee’s 2022 Climate Package and Executive Order on Public Fleet Electrification, and the Biden Administration’s Electric Vehicle Targets.
Were featured in a story on NPR’s All Things Considered stating that our ‘Beyond Gasoline’ mission has evolved from a “fringe idea” to one influencing “the halls of power.”
Generated nearly 50,000 views of our 2018 music video, “Gasoline, Gasoline (The World’s Aflame),” after Fox Business and other conservative news outlets used Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm’s cameo in it to attack her support for clean energy policies.

Coltura is working to improve climate, health, and equity by accelerating the transition from gasoline and diesel to cleaner alternatives. It focuses on changing gasoline supply, demand, and culture through innovative legal and policy pathways, media, and art. It is currently leading a multi-state effort to introduce legislation setting a target for all model year 2030 or later passenger and light-duty vehicles sold to be electric vehicles.
