Global Transportation Roadmap: Climate and Health

Clean air

This webinar will present the results of a new ICCT study on the impact of vehicle and fuel standards on premature mortality and emissions that 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. The study finds that if countries worldwide followed a policy path to Euro 6/VI-equivalent emission standards and ultra-low sulfur fuel, early deaths from road vehicle emissions could be reduced by 75% in the year 2030.

The webinar will begin with a 15-minute executive summary presentation covering highlights of the analysis, followed by a brief question and answer session. The remainder of the webinar will focus on the methods of modeling on-road vehicle emissions and premature mortality using the ICCT Global Transportation Roadmap model.
