Climate Group responds to European Parliament deal on new rules to reduce CO2 emissions in trucks and buses

The Climate Group

Following today’s announcement of a deal in the European Parliament on new rules for reducing CO2 emissions from trucks and buses, our Director of Transport, Sandra Roling, comments:

‘We welcome the announcement from the Council today. It is especially welcome to see that calls to include loopholes for e-fuels – which in effect would prolong the life of the combustion engine and divert funds from zero emission technologies – were resisted.

“This new regulation will stimulate the market for truly zero emission solutions like electric trucks, and make it easier for companies like those in our EV100+ initiative to procure zero emission trucks for their fleets.”
