First-ever EU standards to reduce emissions from trucks

Added: 01 March 2019

The deal follows the agreement reached in December on new CO2 emission standards for cars and light vans in the EU for the period after 2020, and is a further stepping stone for modernising the European mobility sector and preparing it for climate neutrality in the second half of the century.

The agreement requires emissions from new trucks to be 30% lower in 2030 compared to the 2019 emissions.

“With the first-ever EU emission standards for trucks agreed, we are completing the legal framework to reach the European target of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2030,” Commissioner for Climate Action & Energy Miguel Arias Cañete said.  “The European Parliament and Council have reached an ambitious and balanced agreement.  The new targets and incentives will help tackle emissions, as well as bring fuel savings to transport operators and cleaner air for all Europeans.  For the EU industry, this is an opportunity to embrace innovation towards zero-emission mobility and further strengthen its global leadership in clean vehicles.”

Following this provisional political agreement, the text of the Regulation will have to be formally approved by the European Parliament and the Council.  Once endorsed by both co-legislators in the coming months, the Regulation will be published in the Official Journal of the Union and will immediately enter into force.
