Recent developments on the Dieselgate scandal (B8-0222/2019, RC-B8-0223/2019, B8-0223/2019, B8-0224/2019) IT  
 

Questa risoluzione denuncia la debolezza dell’approccio adottato dalla Commissione europea e dagli Stati membri per porre rimedio agli effetti nefasti sollevati dallo scandalo Dieselgate.
Sia il Parlamento sia i cittadini europei sono ancora in attesa di una risposta esaustiva alle domande sollevate dalla Commissione d’inchiesta sullo scandalo delle emissioni nel settore automobilistico (EMIS).
Vi sono gravi responsabilità della Commissione e degli Stati membri a cui occorre, con urgenza, porre rimedio. Ribadiamo quindi con forza la necessità di un impegno corale, che coinvolga Unione europea, Stati membri e case automobilistiche per rendere meno inquinante il parco veicoli esistente.

Emission performance standards for new passenger cars and for new light commercial vehicles (A8-0287/2018 - Miriam Dalli) IT  
 

Il regolamento sugli standard di emissione per la CO2 di auto e furgoni stimolerà la decarbonizzazione dei trasporti contribuendo alla realizzazione dell'Accordo di Parigi sul clima. Certamente sarebbe stato auspicabile un maggiore livello di ambizione, tuttavia è stato raggiunto un buon compromesso che prevede benefici sia sul piano dell'ambiente sia sul piano della salute.
Vi saranno inoltre dei vantaggi per i cittadini e i consumatori, come conseguenza della diffusione di veicoli più efficienti. Il regolamento è complementare alle misure nazionali già adottate a favore della mobilità elettrica (c.d. "ecobonus") e certamente inciderà sulle scelte future dei costruttori con riferimento alla produzione di auto e furgoni a basse o zero emissioni.

Protection of workers from the risks related to exposure to carcinogens or mutagens at work (A8-0382/2018 - Laura Agea) IT  
 

Esprimo apprezzamento per l'ottimo lavoro fatto dalla collega Laura Agea che è riuscita a rendere ancora più ampia la portata della tutela per i lavoratori, contro i rischi da esposizione ad agenti cancerogeni, che mira a garantire questa proposta di direttiva. Si tratta di una normativa particolarmente tecnica ma con ricadute di estrema importanza sulla salute dei lavoratori. Il mio voto è a favore della relazione.
