Enel welcomes the proposal as a necessary instrument to reduce emissions from the European transport sector. However, it needs to be improved to enable the EU to meet its long-term emission reduction targets, effectively address air quality issues and foster Europe’s industrial growth: •More ambitious standards targets – at least 25% reduction by 2025 and at least 50% reduction by 2030 – to put Europe on track to reach the long-term goal of...
EUROFER and WorldAutoSteel regret that the European Commission did not follow through with its original proposal of taking a ‘greenfield approach’ for revising the LDV CO2 Regulations in order to identify the best possible design options that would improve and future-proof them. The next set of regulations has to be able to respond to a far-ranging set of variables tapping into the supply chain, energy grid mix or vehicle ownership. Only by...
CLEPA - European Association of Automotive Suppliers (Belgium)
The European automotive component suppliers lead the world in technologies for efficient, low-emissions vehicles, offering diverse technologies and solutions to reduce CO2 emissions. CLEPA welcomes the 2nd Mobility Package published by the European Commission that carries measures to promote green public procurement, battery cell development and production in Europe and investment in infrastructure for alternative fuels and charging points in...
BDEW German Association of Energy and Water Industries (Germany)
BDEW welcomes the “Clean Mobility Package” published by the European Commission on 8 November 2017 and its aim to significantly promote decarbonization and improve air quali-ty. Improving the inter-linkage between the transport and the energy sector plays a crucial role for reaching the long-term decarbonization targets. By introducing renewable energy sources in the transportation sector, the energy sector is an important driver of clean...
Inter-Environnement Wallonie (Belgium)
With this proposal, the Commission clearly illustrates that between two conflicting goals (follow the recommendations of car manufacturers on the one hand and answer to the climate deal on the other hand), it has chosen… not to choose! Or it has chosen (without admitting it) that to please the car manufacturers is more important than to fight against climate change. If humankind wants to respect the Paris agreement, human societies should...
The proposed annual rate of improvement (15% reduction by 2025 and 30% by 2030) is less ambitious than the current regulations and is not sufficient to curb the growing emissions from the European vehicle fleet. The European Union, in coherence with the Paris Agreement goals, needs to significantly increase the proposed targets. This regulation should set a range of at least 55-60% reduction by 2030, subject to a review in 2022 so as to...
