Mass. Plans ‘Emission Performance Label’ For New Cars

emission_performance_label.jpgThe Massachusetts’ Department of Environmental Protection is proposing plans to require all new cars, beginning with the 2010 models, to bear a “Emission Performance Label.” The sticker aims to help consumer identify new vehicles’ smog and GHG emissions.

The label, which is identical to the one developed by California, scores each vehicle’s smog and global warming emissions on a scale from 1-10, with the highest scores being the cleanest vehicles. The smog score is based on the smog-forming emissions from the vehicle’s operations. The Global Warming score is based on GHG emissions from the vehicle’s operation and fuel production. The average new car should have a score of 5 on both scales.

New York is requiring automobile manufacturers to affix “global warming index” stickers to new cars and passenger trucks beginning in the 2010 model year.
