Australia lags behind UK on emissions action

The city of London this week announced plans for pre-Euro-6 diesel cars and vans to pay an extra £10 for entry to the ultra-low emission zone (ULEZ) in London by 2020. While heavy commercial vehicles will need to comply with Euro-6 regulations to enter the ULEZ, it is not yet clear what charges may be imposed for this sector.

With Euro-6 regulation already upon the HCV industry, many heavy fleet operators have gone some way to help improve air quality in cities. Transport for London’s bus fleet has seen an 85-fold reduction in NOx emissions on the London bus cycle among its Euro-6 vehicles; a prime example of the progress being made by manufacturers and operators.
