CO2 targets for trucks are seriously challenging – Smart strategy for emission reduction is necessary

The European Commission has proposed today for the first time binding EU emission standards for trucks. The proposal contains a reduction of CO2 emissions from trucks by 15% in 2025 against a 2019 baseline and at least 30% in 2030. The parameter recognises payload and mileage and is expressed as the number of grams CO2 per tonne kilometre (g/tkm). A fine of 50€ per g/tkm will be imposed on manufacturers which miss the target. A bonus will be awarded for vehicles emitting 350g CO2/km or less.
