Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust Combustion Freight and Marine Projects

The Volkswagen (VW) Mitigation Trust (also known as the Trust or Mitigation Trust) was established as part of a settlement with Volkswagen for their role in utilizing illegal defeat devices in certain 2.0 and 3.0 liter VW vehicles that resulted in excess emissions. The Trust will provide funding to mitigate these excess emissions through the replacement or repower of older, heavy-duty vehicles, engines and equipment with zero emission and other clean technologies.

The VW Mitigation Trust provides funding through the Combustion Freight and Marine Projects program to replace or repower Class 7 & 8 freight trucks, freight switcher locomotives, and ferry/tugboats/towboats.
