Smart CO2 Reductions
Non-product Measures for Reducing Emissions from Vehicles

Joint Conference ACEA-ECMT-OICA, Turin, 2-3 March 2000


The focus of recent efforts to control emissions of CO2 from vehicles has been on reducing the specific fuel consumption of new passenger cars. Industry and ECMT have been monitoring fuel consumption under their 1995 joint Agreement and industry committed itself to a voluntary agreement with the European Commission in 1998 to reduce the average specific fuel consumption of new passenger cars sold in the EU 25% by 2008. The full effects of these improvements will take some time to be felt as fleet renewal takes a decade on average in the Union. Meanwhile a number of non-product measures could be taken that could have a significant impact on both CO2 and conventional pollutant emissions in the short term.

The purpose of the Conference was to identify some of the more cost efficient of these measures that merit more international attention.
