In 2006, supported by the Energy Foundation (China) and William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, iCET developed China’s first evaluation system and ranking method for environmentally friendly vehicles in collaboration with the Vehicle Emissions Control Centre of China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection. Since 2010, the Green Car China (GCC) system has been available both through a dedicated online user-friendly website and as an annual report release every June. In 2014, the GCC system received the esteemed support of the UNEP, which enabled the use of vehicle tailpipe health impact figures provided by VECC-MEP for constructing an additional vehicle smog index.
