Characterizes the climate and health benefits of adopting world-class standards for new vehicle efficiency/CO2 and conventional pollutant emissions in all members of the G20 Transport Task Group.
Presents a global strategy to reduce fine particulate (PM2.5) and black carbon emissions from the global fleet of on-road diesel vehicles by identifying 36 countries for immediate action.
Demonstrates that meeting Europe's 2030 climate and energy framework goals depends on a combination of policy measures that include CO2 standards for both cars and heavy trucks, improving vehicle testing regulations, and accelerating the transition to EVs.
Oil prices will be lower in the future if low-carbon transport technologies are mass deployed, as these technologies will drive a significant reduction in global demand for oil.
Outlines the methodology used in ICCT's non-road emission inventory model; describes structure, processes, and data flows, and evaluates data collection needs for critical inputs and parameters.
Explains the methods used to construct a global database of historical vehicle sales and facilitate the development of sales-based metrics that track progress toward clean vehicle policies and technologies.
A synopsis of advances in national and international regulations intended to reduce energy use, mitigate climate change, and control air pollution from motor vehicles and fuels across eleven major vehicle markets in 2013 and 2014.
Evaluates worldwide historical and potential impacts of fuel quality and vehicle emission standards, presents a global policy roadmap through 2030, and quantifies the benefits to public health and the climate.
Brazil has moved to control vehicle emissions, and early deaths from exposure to vehicle emissions are projected to decline by 50 percent in 2030. But if Brazil were to adopt best-practice controls on vehicles and fuels, it could cut health impacts by an additional two-thirds.
Without new limits on vehicle emissions and fuel sulfur content, early deaths from emissions of fine particles in India's urban areas will nearly quadruple by 2030. With such limits, India could reduce early deaths by 84 percent compared to business-as-usual in the same period.
The health, climate and economic benefits to Mexico possible through alignment of efficiency standards and emissions standards for light- and heavy-duty vehicles, complemented by clean fuels.
Synopsis of ICCT's recently completed comprehensive assessment of vehicle emission control measures in India, setting Indian policy options in the context of international experience and consensus best practice.
Evaluates the historical and potential impact of transportation policies on global oil consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
This paper is ICCT’s 4th contribution to the UNECE GRPE informal subgroup on the development of a worldwide harmonized light vehicles test procedure (WLTP-DTP).
Surveys technology and policy options available to China as it works to build a world-class vehicle emissions control program, drawing on experience in Europe, Japan, and the United States.
Regulations to reduce GHG emissions are driving a flood of investment in industries and innovative technologies that fuel economic growth while attacking the global problem of inefficient use of expensive, polluting oil.
