Safer and cleaner used vehicles

Within the frame of the 82nd Inland Transport Committee in Geneva, the UNECE hosted the meeting titled “Safer and cleaner used vehicles” – last Monday 24 February 2020.

Mrs Olga AlgayerovaUNECE Executive Secretary – and Mr Jean Todt – UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Road Safety – chaired the event.

CITA was represented by its Executive Director – Mr Eduard Fernández – and saw the participation of Mr Segun Ogunnaike from LACVIS Nigeria, Mr Mike Walsh from DEKRA and Mr André Rjinders from RDW.

The aim of the event was to explore advantages and challenges to create access to safer and cleaner used vehicles that contribute to the sustainable development of countries and cities around the world.

It contributed to a better understanding of the potential role of used vehicles in meeting national, regional and global goals, including those stemming from the Sustainable Development Goals, the Decade of Action for Road Safety, the Global Framework Plan of Action for Road Safety and the Paris Climate Agreement.

The main benefits of safer, cleaner and more energy efficient used vehicles are improved road safety, reduced emissions, improved fuel consumption, and costs savings.
