Reduction of CO2 from road transport

Date: 22 October, 2016

20 July, 2016 the European Commission (EC) presented the new legislative proposal for a Regulation on binding greenhouse gas emission reductions by Member States, for the period 2021-2030. These emission targets cover the sectors of the economy that are not part of the scope of the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS), which is transport, agricultural, building and waste management. These accounts for almost 60% of the total EU emissions.

The proposal from the EC follows up on the Effort Sharing decision from 2009, which established Member State targets in the non-ETS sector between 2012 and 2020. The proposal states this sector must reduce emission with 30% within the EU by 2030 compared to 2005 as contribution to the overall target. Each Member State got individual targets for cuts which vary from 0% to 40%.

Low-emission mobility – comments from Nordic Logistics Association

Date: 18 July, 2016

The European Commission is expected on July 20 to adopt a strategy for reduction of CO2 emissions from transport (land, sea, air). The work on the strategy has been under way for a while and NLA has been contributing in different ways through our active work in working groups at home ann in Bruxelles and in discussions with EU officials. And the effort seems to have paid off.

“The information I have received these days confirms that the Commission is taking a realistic rather than dogmatic approach to the issue of reducing CO2 from transport”, comments CEO of NLA Soren Larsen. ” “We agree on the analysis and the challenge: road transport – freight and passengers – need to continue to develop mobility with less emissions. Road freight transport has already reduced emissions of particles by more than 90%, making a truck considerable cleaner than a diesel passenger car. But we still need to improve on reduction of greenhouse gasses.”
