EU aims to reduce vehicle pollution with CO2 regulation
The European Union (EU) has announced yesterday the introduction of new CO2 legislation to tackle vehicle pollution. The new agreement will require new trucks to have 30% lower gas emissions by 2030 in comparison to 2019.
The regulation now needs to be approved by national legislators in the coming months to enter into force.
“With the first-ever EU emission standards for trucks agreed, we are completing the legal framework to reach the European target of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2030. The European Parliament and Council have reached an ambitious and balanced agreement. The new targets and incentives will help tackle emissions, as well as bring fuel savings to transport operators and cleaner air for all Europeans. For the EU industry, this is an opportunity to embrace innovation towards zero-emission mobility and further strengthen its global leadership in clean vehicles.”
