Higher-octane fuels powering a sustainable future

The European Union recognises the potential to reduce emissions from transport in order to contribute to European and global climate and energy targets.

European legislation aims to maximise the potential of all available technologies, at each part of the automotive value chain, to reduce emissions. This benefits consumers and the environment, while helping to maintain Europe’s industrial leadership.

Internal combustion engines (ICEs) will continue to have an undeniable role to play in the future, thanks to their cost, performance and efficiency competitiveness over other power trains. High-quality fuels can help ICEs reach targets prescribed in EU and national regulatory frameworks. Average new-car emissions in 2015 were 119.6g CO2/km – a 36% decrease in two decades.

High-octane fuels can unlock additional savings from the petrol-car fleet, powering Europe’s sustainable future.
