Heavy-Duty Emissions Standards: EPA's heavy-duty phase-two rule reduces carbon emissions and improves fuel efficiency of heavy-duty vehicles, helping to address climate change and energy security. The final standards are expected to lower CO2 emissions by approximately 1.1 billion metric tons, save vehicle owners fuel costs of about $170 billion, and reduce oil consumption by up to 2 billion barrels over the lifetime of the vehicles sold under the program.

Series: Safer Choice-Labeled Products in Action. Learn about cleaning and other household products that qualify to carry the Safer Choice label.
