Call for better CO2 regulation to safeguard the good functioning of mobility networks and logistics chains

Representing the automotive supply and road transport sectors, CLEPA and IRU have addressed a letter to Members of the European Parliament calling for their support in preserving essential technology options under the new CO2 standards proposal.

The signatories raise that the performance of the future EU road transport sector will very much depend on the technology options allowed by the CO2 standards regulation, as well as the enabling conditions required to successfully decarbonise the sector. They defend that a technology-open approach that allows for the coexistence of various vehicle propulsion systems is critical for the efficient operation of the single market, including for emergency responses to all types of crises.

The letter proposes 5 key recommendations for the CO2 regulation standards, to ensure technology diversity and guarantee an efficient decarbonisation of the freight transport sector.
