This report summarizes advances in national and international regulations intended to reduce energy use, mitigate climate change and control air pollution from motor vehicles and fuels across 11 major vehicle markets from January 2013 through August 2014. The report quantifies benefits associated with environmental policies for light- and heavy-duty vehicles, marine vessels, aircraft, and fuels in terms of reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and local air pollution, fuel savings and benefits to public health. To the extent possible, it also estimates the additional benefits that could be gained through the wider adoption of best-practice policies.
