CLEAN - With the global vehicle fleet set to increase sharply, there is an urgent need to clean up transport modes in order to reduce energy use and emissions. And efficient transport requires the cleanest fuel (petrol and diesel) possible to work properly.
The Partnership for Clean Fuels and Vehicles (PCFV) is the leading global initiative to promote fuels and vehicles in developing and transition countries. It provides a range of technical, financial and networking support for governments and other stakeholders to improve urban air quality.
The PCFV has three campaigns;
- The global elimination of leaded gasoline
- To reduce sulphur in vehicle fuels to 50 ppm or below worldwide
- The adoption of clean vehicles and cleaner, more efficient vehicle technologies
Since its inception the PCFV has directly supported implementation on the ground in every region of the globe in 155 countries including at regional and sub regional level.
In its successful lead elimination campaign, about 80 countries have been supported in addressing and promoting the phase out of the lead issue. Today only 9 countries remain with leaded gasoline against 82 that were leaded when the PCFV was formed in Sept 2002 at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The PCFV is a public-private partnership, with full involvement of the industry. The Partnership is run by its partners from the four major groups’- governments, civil society, private sector and international organizations -which all have an equal say in the Partnership. The PCFV has 119 member organizations.
