where we work / Asia

Translate

Asia is home to the world's fastest growing economies and vehicle markets, and is centrally important in the international effort to reduce GHG emissions. Countries like Japan and South Korea have established automobile industries and a long history of air quality regulation. China and India are motorizing their transportation systems so quickly that even large efficiency improvements could be canceled out by the increasing number of vehicles on the road. Throughout the continent, the abundance of two- and three-wheeled vehicles presents a special challenge to regulating air quality. The ICCT works with governments in the region to reduce emissions of both air toxics and greenhouse gases.

No, fuel economy standards do not put a million US jobs at risk
