The ISO 14062 standard relates to the integration of environmental aspects into the design and development of a vehicle, as well as how recyclable the car is. The ISO 14040 standard, which measures the ecological balance of a car, considers the environmental impact of a vehicle through its entire lifecycle, from production to the end of its life. It also takes in consideration the efforts made to save fuel and reduce CO 2 emissions, as well as the type of materials used. The Mercedes 2008 C-Class was also awarded the TÜV certificate.
