ACFA was created in 2000 as a not-for-profit organization to promote the use of clean fuels in Asia and the Middle East. We believe that the use of clean fuels is one of the most compelling answers to improving the quality of air. Our mission is to promote and advance the interests of stakeholders in the use of clean fuels that benefit the environment by leveraging the economic, technical and environmental attributes of these fuels. ACFA operates by the principles of sound science and technology, cost efficiency and sustainability of the environment. ACFA focuses on fuel quality improvement and harmonization in the regions. We provide scientific information and data as well as technical expertise and knowledge to several national policymaking bodies to empower their clean fuels programs and efforts. We also collaborate with the oil and auto industries, non-government organisations (NGOs) and the academia to facilitate a scientific approach to fuels legislation across the region. ACFA is a proud partner of the United Nations Environment Program Partnership for Clean Fuels and Vehicles (UNEP-PCFV) and a Coordinating Council Member of Clean Air Initiatives for Asian Cities (CAI-Asia).
