GFEI partner the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) has undertaken new analysis on the light commercial fleet in India. This includes both mini trucks and pickup trucks which are used as “last-mile” connectivity to move goods to their final destination. While India has a fuel economy standard for passenger cars (based on CO2 emissions), these do not currently apply to Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs). The paper creates a baseline of fuel consumption to help regulators develop an effective CO2 standard.
Officials from across the South-East Asian region joined together for an online workshop on 27th January 2021 to discuss steps to improve vehicle efficiency. Participants included representatives from the ASEAN Secretariat and all ten ASEAN Member States, namely, Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. The event was organised by GFEI partner the International Transport Forum (ITF) in conjunction with the UN Environment Programme.
