A l’occasion du Salon de Genève 2016, PSA Peugeot Citroën tient ses engagements de transparence vis-à-vis de ses clients en publiant les premiers résultats de consommation en usage réel de trois de ses modèles. Cette initiative est une première mondiale dans l’industrie automobile. Ces résultats sont issus du protocole d’essais défini avec les ONG Transport & Environment (T&E) et France Nature Environnement (FNE), audités par Bureau Veritas. Ce protocole fiable confirme la consommation en usage réel des clients PSA, ainsi que les résultats de la base de données indépendantes d’enquêtes clientèles.
PSA Peugeot Citroën is fulfilling its transparency commitments to customers. In connection with the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show, it is releasing the initial results on real-world fuel consumption for three models. This initiative is a world first in the automotive industry .The results come from a test procedure established with two non-governmental organizations, Transport & Environment (T&E) and France Nature Environment (FNE), and are audited by Bureau Veritas. This protocol confirms the real-world fuel consumption of PSA customers, as well as the results of the independent data bases.
Brussels/Washington, 22 February 2016 – Special privileges for corporations in major trade deals are a serious threat to democracy and the environment according to a new report released today by Friends of the Earth Europe, Sierra Club and Transport & Environment (T&E), as EU-US trade talks resume in Brussels.
European automakers’ leaked plans to cut carbon emissions of cars and trucks are an attempt to wash manufacturers’ hands of any responsibility for reducing their climate impact, sustainable transport group Transport & Environment (T&E) has said.
Suite au scandale Volkswagen, une commission indépendante dite « Commission Royal » a été constituée afin de tester les émissions de 100 véhicules diesel. Membres de cette commission, France Nature Environnement (FNE) et le Réseau Action Climat (RAC) proposent un premier retour concernant les travaux de cette commission.
The UN aviation body ICAO yesterday announced agreement on a global fuel efficiency standard for new aircraft that is unlikely to have any effect on the climate, green NGO Transport & Environment (T&E) has said. The decision fell victim to commercial pressures, the group claimed, and potentially signals business as usual for the Airbus-Boeing duopoly until 2028 – some 20 years after work on the standard began.
The 1.5/2°C warming limit agreed at the Paris climate summit will be impossible to meet unless Europe and the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) introduce measures to cut shipping emissions, NGOs Seas At Risk and Transport & Environment have warned. Shipping could be responsible for 17% of global CO2 emissions in 2050 if left unregulated, according to an EU study, placing climate action firmly at the top of the EU commissioners’ and IMO secretary-general’s agendas when they meet in Brussels today.
The European Commission today published a proposal to improve the system for national authorities approving cars to be sold in all 28 EU member states. Sustainable transport group Transport & Environment (T&E) welcomes the Commission’s constructive and timely attempt to bring into line carmakers who, for decades, have actively undermined the approval system circumventing regulation and damaging public health, safety and the climate.
Aviation giant Airbus is undermining a global fuel efficiency standard for new aircraft – barely weeks after Europe was instrumental in helping secure an ambitious UN global climate deal in Paris, a group of 17 European environmental NGOs  has claimed. Airbus and Boeing aircraft combined account for over 90% of global aviation emissions, but the European manufacturer is arguing it cannot accept a robust efficiency standard as it would damage its business – a claim which suggests it may not be so competitive on fuel efficiency.
Today’s discovery by Belgian national TV that official Opel dealers have been modifying anti-pollution software in Zafira diesel cars without informing their customers is a further indication the Volkswagen Dieselgate scandal is the tip of the iceberg. The software responsible for the functioning of exhaust after-treatment of Zafira 2014 series cars with a 1.6 diesel engine was being adjusted to have the cars emit three times less nitrogen oxide (NOx) than before the software update.
