17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --Highlights: o ioneer becomes founding member of new Zero Emission Transportation Association (ZETA) in the US. o ZETA is advocating for 100% electric vehicle (EV) sales throughout the light-, medium-, and heavy-duty sectors by 2030. o ioneer is one of the earliest members of ZETA, which now includes 28 companies including US majors Tesla, ChargePoint, Uber and Duke Energy. o ioneer is one of two ASX-listed member companies. o ioneer's Rhyolite Ridge Lithium-Boron Project is the most advanced lithium project in the United States. Lithium is a key component in electric vehicle batteries. o ZETA is the first industry-backed coalition in the US advocating for the full adoption of electric vehicles by 2030.ioneer Ltd (ioneer or the Company) (ASX: INR), an emerging US lithium-boronproducer, today announced that it has joined a group of 28 companies to launchthe Zero Emission Transportation Association (ZETA), an organisation dedicatedto achieving 100% electric vehicle (EV) sales in the United States by 2030.ZETA is the first coalition of its kind in the US that brings togetherindustry leaders, advocates and non-governmental organisations across thetransportation, clean energy and technology sectors to drive policy changesthat accelerate electric vehicle adoption.ioneer was one of the first companies to become a ZETA member. In its goal topromote a sustainable future, ioneer joins ZETA alongside major Americancompanies and pioneers such as Tesla, ChargePoint, Uber, and Duke Energy (seefull member list below).Ioneer owns the Rhyolite Ridge Lithium-Boron Project in Nevada, US.

Lithium isan irreplaceable component in lithium-ion batteries, which are essential toEVs, green energy storage systems and other emissions reducing technologies.It is used specifically in the production of battery cathode materials for EVsand is listed as a "critical mineral" by the US Federal Government.ioneer's Managing Director, Bernard Rowe, said:"ioneer's mission is to support a sustainable, lower carbon future through theresponsible production of lithium carbonate, lithium hydroxide and boric acid,which are vital materials to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and creating aglobally sustainable future. We view a global shift to electric vehicles ascentral to our mission. As the most developed lithium project in the UnitedStates, not only are we excited to be working closely with fellow leadersacross the automotive supply chain, we understand the importance of ensuringUS national policy supports a greener future." Through ZETA, member organisations will seek to educate the public on theclimate benefits of electrification and advocate for policies that acceleratethe transition to zero emissions vehicles.

ZETA expects that these policychanges will create hundreds of thousands of new jobs, secure American globalEV manufacturing leadership, dramatically improve public health andsignificantly reduce carbon pollution.ZETA's first task will be to advocate for change in five key policy areas: 1. Outcome-driven consumer EV incentives; 2. Emissions / performance standards enabling full electrification by 2030; 3.

Infrastructure investments; 4. Domestic manufacturing across the EV supply chain, from critical minerals to vehicles; and 5. Federal leadership and cooperation with sub-national entities.Learn more at zeta2030.org.
