Study finds considerable emissions reduction potential for trucks and buses in EU
Mandatory CO2 standards for newly registered trucks and buses in the EU could reduce emissions by about one-quarter, a study conducted by the Berlin-based International Council on Clean Transportation Europe (ICCT) has found. The study argues that there is “sufficient technological potential” to quickly introduce a demanding regulation for such vehicles, which account for about 25 percent of all emissions in Europe’s transport sector. The EU is the only major vehicle market without such mandatory standards in place, the ICCT says.
