Proposal :

Global Fuel Economy improvements - 50by50

Summary : There can be no doubt about the scale of the global challenge of tackling man-made climate change and, in particular, the role played by transport. With a global car fleet predicted to triple by 2050 - over 80% of that in the developing world -- and now, with a global economy facing huge difficulties, we have to find a way to reconcile legitimate aspirations for mobility, an ambitious reduction in CO2 from cars worldwide, and global economic recovery. As the recent report of the High Level Panel of eminent persons concluded, the SDGs should have a specific target on improvements in energy efficiency - more specifically to 'double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency in.....and transport' (pg 31)

A move across the global fleet towards far better fuel economy at a scale which is already technically achievable, could save over 6 billion barrels of oil per year by 2050, and close to half of CO2 emissions from cars, as well as generate significant local air pollution benefits - and all using existing, cost-effective technologies. This is simply too good to ignore.

(The FIA Foundation, IEA, ITF and UNEP have been working in partnership as the Global Fuel Economy Initiative since 2009. The ICCT and UC Davis became full partners in the Initiative in 2012).
