Printer-friendly version

The PCFV Voluntary Commitment aims to achieve major health benefits through improved urban air quality (especially reduction of small particulate matter) will be achieved. The objective is that in 10 years’ time, all developing and transition countries will have introduced low sulphur fuels (50ppm and below) and cleaner vehicle technologies and emission standards leading to reduced urban particulate matter by between 50-80%.

Expected co-benefits included:

  • Reduced energy dependency
  • Significant reduction of Black Carbon (BC), a potent short lived climate forcer
  • Organizations making this commitments:United Nations Centre for Regional Development (UNCRD), Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP), Clean Air Asia (CAA).

Organizations making this commitment: United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) on behalf of the Partnership for Clean Fuels and Vehicles (PCFV)
