Fuel efficiency standard for Mexico
The first fuel efficiency standard for light duty vehicles in Latin America
EMBARQ Mexico partnered with the Mario Molina Center to pioneer the establishment of a national fuel efficiency standard for light duty vehicles, which became law on June 21, 2013. This is the first fuel efficiency law for light duty vehicles in Latin America. It will regulate roughly six million vehicles over five years, reducing CO2 emissions by 125 million tons in that timeframe – equivalent to the amount of CO2 emissions reduced by a forest ten times the size of Mexico City.
