ACEAThe European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA), founded in 1991, represents the interests of the sixteen European car, truck and bus manufacturers at EU level.
Its membership consists of the major international automobile companies, working together in an active association to ensure effective communication and negotiation with legislative, commercial, technical, consumer, environmental and other interests. The members of ACEA are competitors in the automobile market place and support free and fair competition as a trade policy and a legal concept.
Asian Clean Fuels AssociationThe Asian Clean Fuels Association (ACFA) was established in August 2000 as a non-profit organisation with its office in Singapore. Its role is to promote and advance the use of clean fuels in Asia that benefit the environment and meeting the needs of modern automotive vehicle technology. The introduction of Clean Fuels components such as MTBE, will result in the reduction of common air pollutants, improve engine performance and enhance energy security.
ACFA’s members are amongst the largest organisations in the world that are involved in the clean fuels business. We are fast gaining stature and reputation in our quest to promote the use of clean fuels. We are also an integral part of a network of similar organisations around the world whose interest and ambition are largely convergent with ours. Most of these organisations deal with cleaner burning automotive fuels and collectively represent a seamless entity to develop and promote the use of such products internationally. Most Asian countries, like the rest in the world, are grappling with the problem of deteriorating air quality and many countries have taken concrete steps to address the matter and to develop options to solve it. The use of cleaner burning fuels, blended with oxygenates such as MTBE, is considered the most logical approach as it is cost effective with immediate benefits and obviating the need to introduce expensive technology. The introduction of clean fuels components in automotive fuels will result in the reduction of common air pollutants, improve engine performance and enhance energy security.
Clean Air AsiaThe Clean Air Asia (formerly Clean Air Initiative for Asian Cities) was established in 2001 as the premier air quality network for Asia by the Asian Development Bank, World Bank, and the United States – Asia Environmental Partnership (US-AEP) a project of USAID. Clean Air Asia’s mission is to promote better air quality and livable cities by translating knowledge to policies and actions that reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from transport, energy and other sectors.
The Clean Air Asia Center is a registered non-stock, non-profit organization with offices in Manila, Beijing and Delhi. The Center is governed by its Articles of Incorporation, By-laws and Operations Manual approved by its Board of Trustees. The Clean Air Asia Center works on four core programs:
- Air quality and climate change
- Low emissions urban development
- Clean fuels and vehicles
- Green freight and logistics
