Le carburant est un poste de coûts de plus en plus important pour les entreprises. L’utilisation d’une camionnette (ou VUL pour véhicule utilitaire léger) génère en moyenne une facture annuelle de diesel de l’ordre de 2.400 euros1 – soit environ un tiers du « total cost of ownership » (TCO).
European car manufacturers are better positioned than most of their Asian counterparts  to meet the target of 95 g/km average CO2 emissions by 2020, T&E’s 2012 Cars Report says. In the race to hit the 2020 95g target, all European makers (except Daimler) rank in the top 9 whilst five of the bottom six carmakers are Asian.
This report is the seventh T&E has published on the annual progress Europe’s major car manufacturers have made in reducing CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of new cars.
In previous years, we assessed how each carmaker was positioned to hit their mandatory CO2 standards that the European Union has set for 2015 (130 g/km on average).
The International Civil Aviation Organisation (Icao) has recognised that a global market-based measure to tackle aviation’s contribution to climate change is technically feasible. T&E has said this is an important step, as it now means the only obstacle to global action on aviation emissions is political will. The EU has moved to improve the negotiating climate by proposing a delay of one year in the requirement for flights to and from the EU to comply with its Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).
The European Commission has gone back on a series of commitments to reduce the environmental impacts of road vehicles. T&E says the climbdown carries the fingerprints of lobbying by the automotive industry, but will not help Europe’s car makers in the long term.
