We're calling on MEPs to vote in favour of the EU CO2 standards for heavy-duty vehicles

EU

A broad coalition of transport companies, shippers, and industry stakeholders have today urged Members of the European Parliament to vote in favour of an agreement on CO2 emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles.

The new CO2 emission standards for HDVs will rapidly increase the number of zero-emission trucks available for sale over the coming years and thereby bring down technology costs and vehicle prices.

This is crucial so that businesses can fulfil their own commitments, decarbonise their vehicle fleets and leverage the global leadership opportunities of transitioning to zero-emission trucks such as social, employment and air quality benefits.

All signatories are committed to the EU’s 2050 climate neutrality target and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030. Some of these companies have gone further and set even more ambitious climate targets, such as those in Climate Group's EV100+ initiative.
