Technological progress has allowed cars to becoming more and more fuel-efficient. But improving car technology is only one side of the coin. The driving habits have also a significant impact on the fuel efficiency of the vehicle. By adapting them slightly, economical as well as environmental benefits can easily be generated.
The conference is an opportunity for the FIA to present its initiatives on both of these issues and to exchange ideas on possible ways forward to further reduce the impact of mobility on the environment.
The FIA and its member motoring and touring organisations are participating in the following initiatives:
The ADAC study for the recast of the European CO2 labelling scheme
The FIA and its member motoring and touring organisations have advised the European Commission by providing evidence based contributions in the policy process on CO2 emissions from passenger cars and light duty vehicles
The main objective of the conference is to inform the interested general public and other stakeholders on possible contributions from the mobile consumers as well as exchanging ideas on possible next steps.
The Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the world's leading motoring and touring organisation, represents via its affiliated members, national motoring and touring organisations over 100 million motorists worldwide and 34 million motorists in the European Union. Europe's motoring and touring organisations have as their highest priority to make mobility more sustainable, i.e. more reliable, cleaner and safer while keeping it affordable for all.
