CO2 emission performance standards for new heavy-duty vehicles (A8-0354/2018 - Bas Eickhout) PT

18-04-2019

Votei favoravelmente o relatório Eickhout por considerar imperativa a regulação das normas de desempenho em matéria de emissões dos novos veículos pesados. Recordo que cerca de 400 000 cidadãos europeus morrem prematuramente por ano devido à má qualidade do ar e que os veículos pesados novos são responsáveis por um quarto do total das emissões de transporte rodoviário, ou seja, 6% do total das emissões de dióxido de carbono na UE. Destaco as propostas para obter uma redução de 30% das emissões dos veículos pesados novos até 2030. Sublinho que, no caso dos autocarros urbanos, se estabelece que 50% dos novos autocarros devem ser elétricos em 2025 e 75% em 2030. Noto que os nossos principais concorrentes à escala global já introduziram requisitos de redução do consumo de combustível ou das emissões desses veículos, pelo que a UE deve transformar esta oportunidade para se tornar líder em soluções de baixas emissões.

Promotion of clean and energy-efficient road transport vehicles (A8-0321/2018 - Andrzej Grzyb) PT

18-04-2019

Votei favoravelmente o relatório Grzyb por concordar com a promoção de veículos de transporte rodoviário não poluentes e energeticamente eficientes. Realço a meta de 75% para a percentagem de veículos limpos a incluir nos concursos públicos de aquisição até 2030. Sublinho ainda que os incentivos para o recurso a veículos com emissões zero deverão melhorar a qualidade do ar nas cidades, criando melhores condições de vida e ambientes mais saudáveis; reduzir as emissões de gases com efeito de estufa de acordo com as metas estabelecidas no acordo de Paris e impulsionar a indústria europeia para a transição tecnológica, criando mais e melhores oportunidades de mercado. Por conseguinte, considero que esta prioridade deve estar presente na afetação dos recursos financeiros associados aos diferentes programas de coesão, convergência e competitividade, que são fundamentais para apoiar a transição e construir as infraestruturas necessárias.

InvestEU (A8-0482/2018 - José Manuel Fernandes, Roberto Gualtieri) PT

18-04-2019

Votei favoravelmente o relatório Fernandes/Gualtieri por concordar com a criação do Programa InvestEU. Recordo que o programa InvestEU dará continuidade ao Plano Juncker após 2020 com o objetivo de mobilizar investimentos para apoiar o emprego, o crescimento e a inovação. Destaco o financiamento a infraestruturas sustentáveis; investigação, inovação e digitalização; pequenas e médias empresas; investimento social e competências. Finalmente saliento que as ações destinadas à concretização de objetivos climáticos deverão representar, pelo menos, 40% da dotação financeira global do programa.
