EU agrees on new emissions standards for trucks20 February 2019

Truck manufacturers will need to cut CO2 emissions by 30% in new vehicles by 2030, with an intermediate target of 15% by 2025.

The agreement was struck between the European Council and MEPs earlier this week, and will also mean that manufacturers will need to ensure that, by 2025, 2% of new vehicles sold are zero- or low-emission trucks.

The European Commission will also have to propose new post-2030 targets in 2022.

The agreement will have to be formally approved, first by the European Parliament’s environment committee and then by the European Parliament and the Council, before it becomes legislation.
