EU To Cut Truck Emissions

by | Apr 23, 2019

Last week, legislation was approved to ensure truck and lorry manufacturers based in the EU will have to reduce CO2 emissions for new vehicles by 15% by 2025 and 30% by 2030.

The EU Parliament which approved the legislation, will also force manufacturers to ensure 2% of all new vehicles sold are zero or low-emission by 2025.

Trucks and lorries are responsible for 27% of road transport CO2 emissions and almost 5% of EU greenhouse gas emissions, according to EU data.

Since 1990, truck and lorry vehicle emissions have increased by 25%, primarily because of an increase in road freight traffic.

New post-2030 targets will be proposed in 2022 by the European Commission, which will be in line with the Paris Agreement.

With the current uncertainty surrounding Brexit, the UK may have to make similar legislation if and when we leave.
