ETC/ATNI Report 12/2019: The impact of vehicle taxations system on vehicle emissions

Global warming and air pollution are major threats for planet Earth that harm the environment and entail danger to human health. Despite the great efforts that have been made in recent years to solve these issues, the necessary progress has not been achieved and more actions need to be deployed if the world is to remain a supportive residence for humans and other species.

 

The scope of this study is to find the real-world savings achieved in total CO2, NOx and PM10 emissions from the adoption of national policies and European legislation for the period 2010- 2017 for the new registered fleet based on appropriate scenarios developed for this study. In addition, a forecast of the relevant benefits until 2020 was also made.
