In their effort to meet carbon emission standards, car manufacturers are racing to build cars that have zero emissions. In their rush to build these cars one area that may require scrutiny is the supply chain logistics for developing the batteries. The lithium-ion battery industry has been reported for employing child labor for mineral resources. The ability of technology companies to manage personal data has also been problematic over the past decade. Developing zero-emission cars domestically would create jobs as opposed to domestic companies developing this technology overseas. Investments in research and development of ethically sourced, environmental friendly, and data protected vehicular technology have the potential to create domestic jobs while delivering on the promise of zero-emission cars. Participating in building the public trust, car and technology companies can develop zero-emission cars to assist in reducing the effects of climate change if they are willing to make that effort.
