Explanations of vote

Text tabled : A7-0287/2010

  Vilja Savisaar-Toomast (ALDE), in writing. (ET) Today, I voted for the report under discussion concerning emissions standards for new light commercial vehicles. I believe that the report is necessary in view of European Union objectives relating to global warming and emission reduction. Equally, it should be noted that as the light commercial vehicles in question provide a service and are used mainly by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), it is important that their capacities are also taken into account when implementing any necessary changes. I sincerely believe that, in order to achieve the level imposed by this report, we need an appropriate compromise taking account of the SMEs operating in Europe and the global aims of the European Union.
