FEBRUARY 19, 2019
The European Parliament and the Council have reached provisional agreement on a regulation setting, for the first time in the EU, strict CO 2 emission standards for trucks. Under the agreement, emissions from new trucks will have to be 15% lower by 2025 and 30% lower in 2030 compared to 2019 emissions. The deal follows an agreement reached in December on new CO 2 emission standards for cars and light vans in the EU for the period after 2020.
