The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has released a report that explores key trends in carbon dioxide emissions, fuel economy, and technology usage related to model year 1975 through 2015 light-duty vehicles sold in the United States.

Worldwide, the vehicle fleet is not making enough progress on fuel economy and is failing to reach global targets aimed at reducing CO2 emissions, cutting oil consumption and improving energy efficiency according to a new report from the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) (earlier post) released at the Paris COP21 Climate Summit.

This paper investigates the potential for electric vehicles to contribute toward leading nations’ climate goals.

Heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) represent only 4% of the on-road fleet in the European Union, but are responsible for 30% of on-road CO 2 emissions. Countries around the world are implementing standards to regulate CO2 emissions from HDVs.

Vehicle Fuel Efficiency Labeling (VFEL) is used by numerous countries worldwide to improve the fuel efficiency of their transport fleets. The theory behind VFEL is that better-informed consumers are more likely to purchase fuel-efficient vehicles, and that market demand can improve the energy efficiency of the transport sector.

This report aims to provide an up to date picture of the transport sector and transport-related greenhouse gas emissions and mitigation policies in Vietnam, in order to provide policy-makers, researchers, international donors and other stakeholders a reference document for sustainable transport and climate change.

Summarizes the new average fuel economy and greenhouse gas standards for light-duty vehicles that will phase in from 2016 through 2020. On December 30, 2014, the Ministry of Environment (ME) announced the new average fuel economy (FE) and greenhouse gas (GHG) standards for light-duty vehicles (notification no. 2014-235).

The government plans to extend a tax break for purchases of environmentally safer vehicles by a year through fiscal 2016, but apply it to a narrower scope of cars, according to sources close to the

At the time when India is asking rich nations to look at their lifestyle and excessive consumption pattern to reduce their carbon footprints, an Indian green think tank - the Centre for Science and

Sustainable Transport matters when it comes to improving people’s lives. This together with: The transport sector is taking important action to address the two key global policy processes of 2015: sustainable development and climate change are major findings of the 2015 SLoCaT Transport Commitments Report.
