AJC Applauds Israeli Decision on Hybrid Cars for U.S. Envoys

July 10, 2007 – New York – The American Jewish Committee today praised the Israeli government for its decision to convert its diplomatic vehicles in the U.S. to hybrid-electric technology.

“This forward-thinking initiative reflects Israel’s deep, ongoing contribution to the environment and global security,” said AJC Executive Director David A. Harris. “We commend Sallai Merridor, Israel’s ambassador to the U.S., for his leadership on this issue, which helps further diminish our dependence on oil from hostile sources. Let us hope that other nations, particularly those that have been outspoken on energy and environmental matters, will follow Israel’s laudable example.”

AJC has long been a leading advocate for energy independence. The agency’s Fuel-Efficient Vehicle Bonus Program, which provides cash incentives to its employees to purchase new hybrid cars, was the first program of its kind offered by any non-profit organization in America.
