Question for written answer E-005794-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Ulrike Müller (ALDE)

 Subject:  Reducing CO2 and pollutants from heavy-duty vehicles
 Answer in writing 

On 14 November 2018, the European Parliament voted for greater ambition to be shown with regard to the reduction of CO2 emissions from heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs). Air pollution is still, however, a major concern in many parts of the EU. In Germany, several court rulings will lead to the establishment of various access restrictions for diesel-fuelled vehicles. What is more, particularly for HDVs, there is a technological trade-off between reducing either CO2 or pollutant emissions. Therefore, the EU must coordinate its targets and synchronise the implementation of the regulations governing the use of the technologies involved.

1. Could the Commission provide more information on the impact that Parliament’s-amendments to the proposal on CO2 standards for HDVs will have on a post-EURO VI regulation?

2. Could it explain how it is ensuring that reduction strategies for CO2 and pollutant emissions from HDVs are properly coordinated between DG CLIMA and DG GROW?

3. Does it intend to implement a post-EURO VI regulation with the same timeframe as the CO2 standards regulation?
