New survey to collect feedback on the EU’s Clean Vehicle Directive

The European Commission (DG MOVE) has launched a study to evaluate the ‘Clean Vehicle Directive’ or CVD, a piece of legislation which requires that energy and environmental impacts linked to the operation of vehicles over their whole lifetime be taken into account when purchasing cars and other road vehicles. The evaluation aims to provide a clear, evidence-based assessment of the impacts of the Directive as it currently stands, and determine whether the Directive is the most effective and appropriate choice to achieve EU-wide objectives.

The Clean Fleets project is supporting Ricardo-AEA and TEPR who have been contracted to carry out this evaluation on behalf of the Commission. Through an online survey, they are engaging with public organisations who have procured road transport vehicles since the start of 2012.

Interested parties are invited to share their views by completing the survey, which will be online until Friday, 24 April 2015. The survey is available in six languages: English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian and Spanish. Questions about the survey can be sent to
