Review of EU emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles
The EU Commission launched a public consultation for a review of emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles.
The European Green Deal includes the target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 and achieving climate neutrality by 2050. Road transport is a key to achieving this goal.. Therefore, the Commission wants to review the current EU rules on CO2 emission standard for heavy-duty vehicles and set more ambitious emission-reduction targets for such vehicles.
The public consultation includes topics such as:
- the stringency of the CO2 emission targets (targets and timing)
- the possible extension of the scope of the current CO2 Regulation to further categories of heavy-duty vehicles
- the nature and appropriateness of a mechanism to provide incentives for zero- and low-emission vehicles
- the appropriateness of a new mechanism to take into account the potential contribution of renewable and low-carbon fuel when determining manufacturers’ compliance with their targets
The public consultation will remain open until the 14th March 2022. It can be accessed HERE.
