The European Parliament has recently voted for stricter CO2 targets in the car and van industry. This is because transport is still one of the largest source of CO2 emissions in Europe, factoring for one-fifth of emissions. Now the final decision lays at the feet of the Council to decide our CO2 targets.
Currently, Germany, France, Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria are being influenced by rich car manufacturers to lower these targets. Our representatives should listen to us, not lobby groups. Let the Environment Ministers of Germany, France, Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria know that Europe wants a reduction of CO2 emissions of cars and vans by 40% by 2030. It's up to us to let these Environment Ministers know that we want higher emissions reduction targets to work towards a decarbonised renewable future.
