The Southeast Asian road transport sector consumes an estimated 139,874 kilotons of oil annually.1 As a result of a rapid increase of private cars and motorcycle use in recent years, the region’s energy demand has greatly expanded and current transport policies fall short to meet the transport emission reductions targets for carbon dioxide (CO2) by 2050.2 While most Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries have set cleaner vehicle and fuel quality roadmaps, there’s a wide variation between standards and their implementation among the different member countries, which was one of the topics of discussion during the 1st Clean Fuels and Vehicles Forum in the ASEAN Region, held November 2013 in Singapore.
The event was organized by Clean Air Asia and the Singapore National Environment Agency (NEA). Supporting partners included the Climate and Clean Air Coalition and Partnership for Clean Fuels and Vehicles under the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the German International Cooperation (GIZ), with private sector support from MAHA, Asian Clean Fuels Association (ACFA), and Shell.
