Analyzing Europe’s CO2 standards proposal for trucks and buses

On February 14, the European Commission released its proposal to revise the currently adopted CO2 standards for trucks and buses. The proposal extends the scope to cover new vehicles and outlines a new set of rules and more ambitious CO2 reduction targets to decarbonize the heavy-duty sector to meet Europe’s climate goals. This webinar presented a first analysis of the technical and policy implications of the proposed regulation. Felipe Rodríguez, ICCT’s Heavy-Duty Vehicle Program Lead, and Eamonn Mulholland, Researcher in the Heavy-Duty Vehicle Program, examined the key elements of the proposal in a short presentation.
