Add your name! Let’s make our voices heard and urge car giants to move forward from the ICE (internal combustion engine) age!
With your help, we can demand the world’s biggest brands to stop producing cars dependent on fossil fuel consumption. This will accelerate the change we need to mitigate the climate crisis and build a sustainable future.

*ICE: Internal Combustion Engines, i.e. fossil fuel vehicles, including hybrids.
The results are based on a Greenpeace East Asia report: Auto Environmental Guide 2021, published on 1 November 2021. Overall grades also reflect extra deductions on evidence of negative climate lobbying and serious violation of CO2 emission-related regulations.
For an average car, 80% of its life cycle greenhouse gas emissions are produced when it’s driven.5
The other 20% of a car’s life cycle emissions are released when it’s manufactured, especially during steel production.4
Carmakers must reduce resource consumption, reuse batteries, and recover metals to minimise environmental impact.
The top automakers should:
1 IEA: Global EV outlook.
2 IEA: Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Energy: Overview.
3 Toyota opposed stricter car emissions standards or fought electric vehicle mandates in markets including the Australia, EU, US, and UK.
4 IEA: Comparative life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions of a mid-size BEV and ICE vehicle.
5 According to WRI’s State of Climate Action 2021 report, in order to be aligned with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C temperature goal, the share of BEVs and FCEVs in global car sales would need to reach 75% by 2025, and in leading markets would need to hit 100% by 2030.
