Reducing emissions from passenger cars in Turkey


In partnership with the Istanbul Policy Center-Sabancı University-Stiftung Mercator Initiative, the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) will present an overview of the current structure and emission levels of the passenger car market in Turkey and discuss policy options that could help increase the share of vehicles with low emission levels, including but not limited to electric vehicles. A particular focus will be on vehicle taxation policies, as well as an assessment of Turkey’s fuel consumption, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and air pollutant emissions, such as nitrogen oxide (NOx). The workshop will focus on how the current situation and future opportunities in Turkey compare to other countries, especially Germany, with input from a representative of the German Ministry for Environment.
