the EU market for the first time, binding CO2 limits for Trucks and buses. The the Europe, decided to Parliament. Deputies praised the decision as a "milestone". Criticism comes from the manufacturers.
the vote of The European Parliament was clear: a large majority of the deputies voted for the emissions of CO2 for new trucks should be reduced. By 2025, an average of 15 percent compared to today and in 2030 by 30 percent. In order not to for the first time, apply only for new cars CO2 limits, but also for Trucks and heavy commercial vehicles.
The EU Commissioner, Miguel Arias cañete, calculates what to bring: "With the agreed targets of emissions in the transport sector will decline by 2030, 24 percent compared to 2005."a "milestone on the way to clean mobility,"
the new CO2 limits for Trucks was similar to wrestling how to include more stringent requirements for new cars. In the end, a compromise between the EU, can the Parliament and the member States, the members had to today confirm, and with the many good life. Tiemo Wölken of the SPD, and about speaks of a "milestone on the road to clean mobility".
The members of the European Parliament Peter Liese of the Christian democratic party believes that all sectors in the transport sector must make a contribution to climate protection. He could find but it's good that the limit values have not been sharper. Especially since the changeover to low-emission vehicles - such as electric-Truck - for manufacturers, a major challenge to mean: "to achieve a 15 percent Emission reduction in 2025, is sporty and it is reasonable that we have not gone beyond it."
The green MEP Bas Eickhout would have been seen. But he, too, is satisfied with the result and that it should, in the future, CO2-limits for Trucks and heavy-duty vehicles such as buses. For Eickhout, the scheme is a clear Signal: "It is important that the manufacturers now have long-term clarity. You know, where you have to invest. This is to ensure that the transport sector is clean."
