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.
Summarizes potential gains from known efficiency technologies in new freight-hauling tractor-trailers and rigid delivery trucks and presents a rationale for introducing and upgrading HDV efficiency standards in major markets.
To rectify the implementation and compliance issues associated with P-7 standards for heavy-duty vehicles in Brazil, quickly advancing to the next P-8 phase and aligning it with Euro VI standards is the most effective option.
Under current regulatory standards, the wide commercialization of diesel cars would significantly increase NOX and PM2.5 emissions, contributing to poor air quality and adding 150,000 premature deaths through 2050.
P-8 standards in Brazil are a highly cost-effective means of reducing the environmental impact of diesel HDVs in Brazil and timely action is of critical importance.
