Infoclip: Fit for 55 package - CO2 emissions standards for cars and vans


On 14 July 2021, as part of the 'fit for 55' package, the Commission presented a legislative proposal for a revision of the Regulation setting CO2 emission performance standards for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles (vans). To raise the contribution of the road transport sector to the EU's climate targets, the proposal sets more ambitious 2030 targets for reducing the CO2 emissions of new cars and vans and allows only zero-emission vehicles from 2035. In the European Parliament, the proposal has been referred to the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI), with Jan Huitema (Renew, the Netherlands) as rapporteur. The Parliament adopted its position during the June I 2022 plenary session, and the Council adopted its general approach on 29 June 2022, and trilogue negotiations commenced on 27 October 2022.
