Lower-sulphur fuels, road transport strategies and air quality improvements (Executive summary)

February 2020

IPIECA, jointly with the UNEP Partnership for Clean Fuels and Vehicles (PCFV), has published its updated guidance document on fuel sulphur. The document, together with this standalone executive summary, gives guidance for the management of road transport emissions.

The guidance discusses the characteristics of effective air quality management frameworks and recommends a holistic approach to reducing mobile source emissions by treating the vehicle, the fuels and the infrastructure as an integrated system. This approach allows countries to develop strategies to maximize both economic and social benefits, including those associated with clean air and protection of public health.
