CO2 Emissions

The EU Council has officially adopted new regulations on CO2 emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles, aiming to significantly reduce road transport emissions and promote zero-emission vehicles. The updated rules set ambitious new targets: a 45% reduction in emissions by 2030, 65% by 2035, and 90% by 2040 for medium lorries, heavy trucks, and coaches. Additionally, urban buses must achieve 100% zero emissions by 2035, with a 90% target by 2030. The regulation, part of the Fit for 55 legislative package, aligns with the EU’s goal of cutting net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 and achieving climate neutrality by 2050. The new rules will be signed and published in the Official Journal of the EU, entering into force 20 days after publication. The Commission will review the regulation’s effectiveness and impact in 2027.
