Emissions Targets To Facilitate Industry Integration
BMI View : We expect to see more JVs between auto manufacturers and suppliers to achieve lower emissions from driving. Furthermore, as autos companies seek to integrate their supply chains, we expect to see further M&A deals with suppliers focusing on fuel efficiency and emissions-reduction technology.
Carbon dioxide emission rates for passenger cars in the European Union (EU-27) declined to 127 grams of CO2 per kilometre (g/km) in 2013, according to provisional data from the European Environment Agency (EEA). The primary drivers of efficiency have been technological improvements from autos manufacturers and increased sales volumes of diesel cars, which typically have lower emissions levels than petrol equivalents.
