Press Release

DVD "Eco-driving: Money Saving Tips for Household Managers"

December 13, 2005

The Ministry of the Environment (MOE) has created a DVD entitled "Eco-driving: Money Saving Tips for Household Managers." This DVD introduces easy tips on how to drive a car wisely while saving on gas and reducing CO2 emissions. CO2 emitted from automobiles accounts for 30% of the total emission from the household sector. Also, when examined by sector, emissions from the transportation sector, including those from automobiles, have increased by 20% from the FY 1990 level. Therefore, reduction of CO2 emission from automobiles is a pressing issue.

Eco-conscious driving is said to increase fuel efficiency by 10 - 20% compared to driving without environmental consciousness. The MOE hopes this DVD would be helpful to drivers.
