What are the most effective ways to achieve significant CO2 reductions in road transportation?

The inaugural FISITA World Automotive Summit was organised ahead of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 15) in Copenhagen. By assembling the key experts prior to the world event, FISITA contributed to the debate as a ‘pathfinder’, by helping to identify shared priorities and bring focus to the work being done.

Expert speakers included:-

Christoph Huss, FISITA President and Vice President for Development Abroad, Type Approval and Traffic Management BMW

Lee Schipper, Senior Research Engineer Precourt, Institute of Energy Efficiency Stanford University

Alan Lloyd, President, International Council on Clean Transportation
