Environmental Action Germany takes legal action on emissions limits in 45 German cities

DUH / Süddeutsche Zeitung

The NGO Environmental Action Germany (DUH) initiated several additional legal proceedings on emissions limits in German cities, bringing the total number of affected cities to 45, the organisation writes in a press release. “Diesel driving bans in more than 60 German cities by 2018 are inevitable,” after the environment ministry said that the planned software updates were not enough to guarantee clean air, said DUH head Jürgen Resch.
Representatives of German municipalities and ministries gathered in Berlin in a first post-Diesel Summit working group meeting to discuss their own diesel vehicle fleets, write Markus Balser and Michael Bauchmüller in a separate article in the Süddeutsche Zeitung.
