2006 progress report on the car industry's voluntary commitment to reduce CO2 emissions. Details on emissions reductions made by car manufacturer groups ACEA, JAMA and KAMA including historical figures.
European carmakers are failing to deliver the lower carbon emissions they pledged to the European Commission in 1998 (1), with emission rates from new cars down by just 0.2% last year, the worst performance on record.
Current proposals to include aviation in the EU Emissions Trading Scheme will have very little impact on aviation's contribution to climate change, a new report by leading climate scientists warns today.
Fleet-average CO2 emissions of new cars sold in the EU should improve at a rate of five per cent a year, achieving 120 g/km by 2012, 80 g/km by 2020, and 60 g/km by 2025 says T&E in a response to the European Union public consultation on cars and climate change.
