Daimler Trucks Compliant with 2014 GHG Regulations
DTNA’s GHG14 certification came a year ahead of the mandated compliance date for the EPA and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s first-ever program to reduce heavy- and medium-duty truck greenhouse gas emissions. Under the GHG14 regulations, trucks and buses built in 2014 through 2018 are projected to reduce oil consumption by 530 million barrels and greenhouse gas emissions by 270 million metric tons.
NHTSA and EPA designed the GHG14 standards in an attempt to address global climate change and oil consumption through improved fuel efficiency, while providing regulatory certainty for manufacturers.
An EL Insights report released in December last year details efforts being made by companies including Daimler to reduce the energy use and greenhouse gas emissions of its truck and rail freight.
