At the North American Leaders Summit (NALS) in June 2016, the heads of the governments of Canada, Mexico, and the United States agreed to “commit to reduce air pollutant emissions by aligning air pollutant emission standards for light- and heavy-duty vehicles and corresponding ultralow-sulfur fuel standards by 2018.” To support regulatory effort

New regulations for New Zealand's fuel specifications will support the growth of lower-emission fuels that are better for people, the environment and cars, Energy and Resources Minister Judith Coll

Road transportation is one of the leading sources of outdoor air pollution in Southern and Western Africa, particularly in cities, where emissions from light- and heavy-duty vehicles, minibuses, buses, and two-and three-wheelers continue to negatively affect public health, making motor vehicles a central area for rapid policy response.

China is one of the top markets in the world for two- and three-wheelers. On October 28, 2016, the Chinese Ministry of Industry, Information and Technology released, for public comment, proposed fuel-consumption standards for two- and three-wheeled vehicles (motorcycles and mopeds).

A combination of the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) and California’s Cap-and-Trade Program can reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions and reduce dependence on oil more economically and effectively, relative to Cap-and-Trade alone.

In 2014, the G20 Energy Efficiency Action Plan prioritized the establishment of a Transport Task Group (TTG) to promote cooperation among participating G20 countries to develop domestic policies that improve the energy efficiency and environmental performance of motor vehicles, particularly heavy-duty vehicles.

Develops a cost-benefit analysis to compare the impact of three separate policies to spur the additional production of ultralow-carbon fuels in California: a contract-for difference price guarantee, a per-gallon subsidy, and upfront capital grants.

Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Vinay Shivanand Naik Vs State of Karnataka & Others dated 12/01/2017 regarding purchase of diesel engine buses by BMTC (Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation).

Respondents argued that use of diesel of BS IV is equivalent to CNG fuel and from the point of view of safety, it is better than CNG fuel. It was also argued that in all 3672, BS IV norms compliant buses are sought to be secured by 4 State Transport Corporations in the State for which tenders were floated.

Question raised in Lok Sabha on BS-IV Emission Standard Fuel, 05/12/2016. As per roadmap given in ‘Auto Fuel Vision & Policy, 2025’ Report, Government has notified a schedule on 19.01.2015 for phased introduction of BS-IV fuels in the entire country by 01.04.2017.
