The Commission launches a campaign to promote energy efficient driving
The European Commission, together with Europia, one of the partners of the Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign, have launched today a number of actions to promote energy efficient driving habits among European car users. "To reach our ambitious targets of CO2 reduction and energy savings we have to make a big effort in all sectors. In certain cases this will require high tech solutions, but in others we just need to apply some common sense. This campaign provides a set of simple tips to reduce CO2 emissions and save money, simply by driving more intelligently. Learning a few tricks will help EU citizens to keep more fuel in their tanks, more money in their pockets and more CO2 out of the atmosphere", said Energy Commissioner Andris Piebalgs.
