EU agrees on Greenhouse Gas Emission cut for Trucks

EU agrees on Greenhouse Gas Emission cut for Trucks

The European Union agreed on 20 Feb to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) from new trucks and buses by 30% by 2030.

There is also an interim 15% reduction target for 2025 and incentives for manufacturers to make low and zero-emission trucks. The 2030 target is also subject to a review in 2022.

The EU currently has no limits on emissions from heavy-duty vehicles, unlike the United States, China, Japan and Canada. Trucks account for almost one quarter of the bloc’s transport-related emissions.

EU Goal to reduce Greenhouse Gases

The EU has the ambition of being climate-neutral from 2050. EU had agreed in December 2018 on targets for cutting emissions from cars and vans.

The curbs on the transportation sector are expected to help the bloc meet its overall goal of reducing greenhouse gases by at least 40 per cent below 1990 levels by 2030 under the Paris climate accord.
