Fuelling change

Transport and Climate Change project

Vehicle being fuelled

Transport and Climate Change project Over the past six years, the Transport and Climate Change project, funded by the Government of Germany, has worked in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam to improve the political framework associated with reducing fuel consumption in the ASEAN region. The project has, among other activities, supported the implementation of a fuel consumption labelling scheme for new vehicles in the Philippines and developing a standard for electric two-wheelers in Malaysia, and worked to reform the excise tax to reflect emissions from passenger cars in Thailand. At the ASEAN regional level, the project has supported the creation of the Expert Group on Sustainable Land Transport, the first working group addressing sustainability in transport, as well as the adoption of the ASEAN Fuel Economy Roadmap. For the first time in the history of ASEAN, the Roadmap introduces a commitment to reduce fuel consumption by 26% by 2025.
