FCAI Response to Vehicle Emissions Discussion Paper

30th June, 2016

The Australian automotive industry is committed to continuing to make a strong contribution to national efforts to reduce the impact of global climate change. 

Australia is a small market comprising only 1.5% of global production. To offer vehicles with world-class pollutant emission standards, Australia must harmonise pollutant emission and fuel standards with leading overseas markets. 

CO2 standards or targets need to be considered together with pollutant emission standards and fuel quality standards as they are all interrelated. This position is shared by many governments, research organisations and the global automotive industry 

The anticipated environmental benefits of adopting Euro 6 pollutant emission standards for petrol engined light vehicles will not be realised until such time as 10 ppm sulphur petrol is widely available in Australia.
