Consumer information, labelling; Protection of the environment
The information to consumers about how the environmental and climate impact of different fuels and fuel products varies is currently limited and is based on voluntary initiatives from fuel suppliers, e.g. through various labels and marketing. By giving consumers increased knowledge and the opportunity to compare the environmental and climate impact of different fuels in a uniform way, they are allowed to make choices that might lead to increased use of fuels with a lower climate impact.
