CO2 emissions

Climate change is a global challenge which demands collective action and international cooperation. The automotive sector is playing a leading role, embracing its responsibility to reduce CO2 emissions from vehicles and production.

Currently, the European automobile industry invests €53.8 billion into R&D annually, much of which goes towards fuel-efficiency technologies, putting the European industry in the global lead for clean vehicles and production.

This has resulted in significant cuts in CO2 emissions from cars and commercial vehicles, and in energy-efficiency improvements at plants across Europe. 

The industry continues to stress the importance of joint action by all stakeholders. Vehicle makers, fuel companies, governments, transport operators and consumers must all play their part in this integrated approach necessary to reduce CO2 emissions efficiently.
