Climate and road vehicles
Framework contract for services in the field of analysis, assessment and policy development in relation to climate forcing impacts of light-duty road vehicles
Client: DG CLIMA
Light Duty road Vehicles (LDV, i.e. passenger cars and vans) account for more than 56% of EU total transport sector GHG emissions and over 71% of road transport GHG emissions. As a result, a range of policy actions and legislation have been developed and implemented in recent years aiming to control and reduce these emissions.
Within this context, the main role of DG CLIMA is to initiate and define transport-related environment policy and legislation that are effective in supporting the EU in meeting its GHG emissions targets, to promote consistency and coherence in all policy areas, and to ensure that agreed policy measures are implemented effectively by the EU Member States.
The existing legislation and policies need to be reviewed periodically to take account of the evolving scientific information and undergo continuous assessment to evaluate their effectiveness and correct implementation, particularly with respect to meeting the EC’s objectives on climate change.
The LDV Framework Contract will support DG CLIMA in fulfilling this role, facilitating the swift and cost-effective provision of technical analysis and support that will inform policy and legislative developments.
