Quantifies the benefits of policies for reducing air pollutant emissions from heavy-duty vehicles in the G20 economies.
Workshop report of the December 2019 meeting of the G20 Transport Task Group
Reveals that the efforts made by multiple Transport Task Group (TTG) countries to promote and support policies and programs—including stringent tailpipe emissions standards, fuel economy standards, low sulfur fuels, and green freight programs—are in good alignment with the long-term perspective and pathways of the Transport Task Group defined in the G20 Energy Efficiency Leading Programme.
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.
Policies to reduce fuel consumption, air pollution, and carbon emissions from vehicles in G20 nations
Reviews current policies, summarizes information on technology and costs, emissions reductions, and benefit-cost ratios, and outlines policy options aimed in particular at HDV tailpipe emissions and fuel efficiency.
