New CO2 reduction targets

New CO2 reduction targets

The European Commission has presented targets for reducing CO2 emissions for passenger cars and commercial vehicles: – 15% by 2025 and -30% by 2030. The European Parliament is now discussing these targets and one of the parliamentary committees even proposes a -45% reduction.

In the next few days it will be clear whether these ambitious or unrealistic targets will be imposed on the European car industry. One thing is certain – these agreements will define the future development of the car industry.

EU car manufacturers are fully committed to further reducing CO2 emissions. According to the European Automobile Manufacturers Association ACEA, although significant amounts are spent in research and development to achieve full decarbonisation, the achievement of this objective depends on many factors that do not always depend on the automotive industry.

We are talking about the lack of adequate infrastructure or the higher cost and lower range of choice for the purchase of electric cars compared to diesel or gasoline vehicles. There is also a tendency among consumers to switch from diesel to gasoline, which has a high impact on increasing CO2 emissions. According to ACEA, it is therefore important to set more realistic targets.

What will be the impact of the new EU rules?

On 27 November, during the International Automotive Business Meeting, one of the conference’s debates will be focused on the impact for Automotive of the European regulations on CO2 emissions.

The experts invited to the round table moderated by Jakub Faryś, President of the Association of the Polish Automotive Industry, will discuss emission reduction plans and whether the European and Polish automotive industry can achieve this goal.

What will be the consequences? How does the evolution, or perhaps the revolution, of electromobility fit into these plans?
