New car emission limits finally provide planning security – opinion


The car industry may have managed to weaken new EU car emissions regulations, but at least the new rules provide urgently needed planning security, argues a commentary in Tagesspiegel. “That is necessary, because a lot of money will need to be invested. A CO2 emissions cut of 30 percent by 2030 is not trivial,” it says, concluding: “One thing is clear: The new EU rules for the car industry alone won’t be enough to kickstart the transport transition. EU states will have to top up if they want to reach climate targets.”
