Policy Target:

In October, 1999, the EU accepted a voluntary pledge by Japanese and Korean car makers to cut pollution from exhaust fumes gradually over the next 10 years - an agreement equivalent to the voluntary scheme agreed to in 1998 by the Association of European Automobile Manufacturers. Under the plan, Japanese and Korean car manufacturers will cut average fuel consumption to about 6 litres per 100 kilometres by 2009 (down from the current average of 7.7 litres per 100 kilometres) and to cut the amount of CO 2 in the exhaust fumes from 180 grams per kilometre to 140 grams per kilometre.

This record is superseded by:EU/Japanese & Korean Car Manufacturers Agreement
