Low sulphur fuels and cleaner, more efficient, vehicles in Peru

In March 2012, the Ministry of Environment of Peru signed an agreement with the Transport Unit of UNEP to work together on low sulphur fuels and more efficient vehicles. Peru has consented to the use of USD 385,000 from Peru’s Climate Change allocation of the GEF System of Transparent Allocation of Resources (STAR) for this work.

UNEP, through the Partnership for Clean Fuels and Vehicles, will support Peru’s transition to cleaner fuels. Currently the diesel fuels are at 5,000ppm nationwide, with the capital city at 50ppm. No target date has yet been set for adoption at national level for 50ppm fuels.

The Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) will support the development of a national program to address automotive fuel economy through the establishment of a national working group to develop fuel economy policy options and the calculation of a national auto fuel economy baseline starting with the year 2005.
