About PCFV

The Partnership for Clean Fuels and Vehicles (PCFV) is the leading global public-private in23itiative promoting cleaner fuels and vehicles in developing and transition countries.

Established at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in September 2002 in Johannesburg, the PCFV brings together 72 organizations representing developed and developing countries, the fuel and vehicle industries, civil society, and leading world experts on cleaner fuels and vehicles. Our partners combine their resources and efforts to achieve cleaner air and lower greenhouse gas emissions from road transport by applying fuel quality improvements and proven vehicle technologies in use in leading global auto markets.

Following the successful ten-year campaign to end the use of leaded petrol on a global scale, the PCFV was re-launched in October 2012 in London with a renewed focus on;

  • The Lead Campaign: an effort aimed at completing the phase out of leaded petrol in the last countries still using TEL, and to ensure that only catalyst equipped vehicles will be added to national fleets in countries that have completed phase-out;

  • The Sulfur Campaign: an effort to promote the introduction of low sulfur fuels of 50 ppm or less together with the adoption of advanced vehicle emissions standards
