> SAN FRANCISCO, California, March 8, 2002 (ENS) - Global principles for achieving cleaner, more efficient road vehicles worldwide have been developed by an international group of regulators and industry representatives. Just released by the Energy Foundation, a San Francisco based partnership of major foundations, the "Bellagio Memorandum" is based on discussions held at a meeting last June in Bellagio, Italy.

Responding to priority environmental and health concerns surrounding road vehicles, the expert group identified a total of 43 principles for further action by governments and the fuel and vehicle industries.

Non-technical options, such as actions to promote public transport, are not considered, though the group acknowledges that these too will have an important role to play.
