About

The ICCT's discovery of a global scheme by Volkswagen to deliberately avoid motor vehicle standards has led to a paradigm shift in the auto industry and in transport policies and planning for countries and cities. This work has led to improved compliance and enforcement programs within the U.S., Europe, China, Korea, Japan and many other major markets. Paris, Madrid, Athens, Mexico City announced diesel bans by 2025, in part inspired by the subsequent real world emissions testing by Germany, France and United Kingdom.
