Joint Research Centre of the European Commission developed the Internet tool for citizens facilitates evaluation of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions during daily car journeys to work by car or going on holiday, a statement from Brussels.
Tool for driving green (Green Driving Tool) was developed to support the initiatives of the Commission for the decarbonization of transport in Europe.
This interactive online tool enables the assessment of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for individual car journeys based on variables such as the class of car, engine, fuel and driving style.
“Tool for green driving developed by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission,makes it easier for consumers to make more informed decisions related to transport by car and shows them how to reduce CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. That is a great example which shows how science can support the policy objectives and how it can offer practical tools to address social challenges and give more control to citizens, “said Tibor Navracsics, counselor of education, culture, youth and sports in charge of the Joint research Centre.
