In addition to the agreement with ACEA, the European Commission has also concluded agreements with the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) and the Korea Automobile Manufacturers Association (KAMA). However, for the latter two, the deadline is 2009 instead of 2008, and ACEA accounting for 86.4% of car sales in Europe, the impact of the latter two is much smaller. “Legislation therefore remains our preferred option. However, ETIRA recognises that the October 2020 draft is a useful step forward and that while the main objectives we continue to defend can be achieved through a stricter voluntary agreement, ETIRA would like to participate in the process and participate in it, provided that the proposal contains our minimum amendments proposed in accordance with the Treaty on European Union. The EU Circular Economy Action Plan and the EU Ecodesign Directive. This website publishes the text of the Agreement and all relevant documents, including a list of signatories, compliance reports, invitations to Meetings of the Governing Board and minutes of Steering Board meetings.

The agreement signed in 1998 aimed to achieve an average of 140 g/km of CO2 by 2008 for new passenger cars sold by the association`s vehicles in Europe. This target corresponds to a 25% reduction from the level of 186 g/km in 1995 and corresponds to a fuel consumption of 5.8 l/100 km and 5.25 l/100 km for petrol and diesel engines. However, the average for the entire passenger car market was 153.7 g/km in 2008, so the target was not met. ► Analyze the design of voluntary agreements (IAs) for energy efficiency. ► Survey on SAAs at national level in the European Union.

A number of EU Member States have put in place voluntary agreements (PDOs) aimed at achieving energy savings and emission reductions by increasing energy efficiency in different sectors of final consumption, mainly for industry. .
