The aim of this project is to guarantee the quality of the ecoscore methodology and the continuous updates of the ecoscore website. The ecoscore methodology allows one to evaluate the environmental performance of a vehicle by taking into account the most important environmental impact factors caused by the vehicle: global warming (mainly through CO2), air pollution (e.g., particulates and nitrogen oxides, impacting both human health and ecosystems) and noise nuisance. An ecoscore between 0 and 100 will be attributed to every vehicle. The closer to 100, the more environmentally friendly the vehicle is. VUB, in collaboration with VITO, carries out a yearly environmental assessment of the Belgian car fleet based on this methodology.
