Monitoring and reporting of CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of heavy-duty vehicles

06-06-2018

Heavy-duty vehicles (HDV) are responsible for around a quarter of CO2 emissions from road transport in the EU. Without further action, their emissions are expected to grow due to increasing road transport volumes. To address this issue, the European Commission recently proposed targets for reducing the CO2 emissions of new HDVs over the 2020-2030 period. These build on a 2017 proposal for a regulation on the monitoring and reporting of CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of HDVs, on which a trilogue agreement was reached in March 2018. The European Parliament is expected to vote on the agreed text during its June 2018 plenary session.
