Commission Royal: Des premiers résultats très alarmants

Suite au scandale Volkswagen, une commission indépendante dite « Commission Royal » a été constituée afin de tester les émissions de 100 véhicules diesel. Membres de cette commission, France Nature Environnement (FNE) et le Réseau Action Climat (RAC) proposent un premier retour concernant les travaux de cette commission.

Brow-beaten Parliament agrees to double pollutant emissions from diesel cars

The European Parliament today caved in to pressure from car-producing countries and agreed to weaken the limits for nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from new diesel cars. The effective new ‘Euro 6’ limit, 168mg of NOx per km, is more than double that agreed in 2007 (80mg/km). From 2020, all new cars will still be allowed to emit 120mg/km. Transport & Environment (T&E) is disappointed with the decision, which will undermine efforts to clean up Europe’s air and improve public health.

It is time for carmakers to clean up their act

The almost daily revelations of the Volkswagen dieselgate soap opera continue to cast a shadow over the company and the car industry.

The company has acutely damaged the reputations of Germany’s behemoth automotive sector and Teutonic engineering – but they are not the only villains.

Europe’s largest car club wants CO2 capped at 75g per km in 2025

Europe’s largest association of car drivers, the German ADAC, has said a 75g per km CO2 emissions limit for new cars from 2025 would be consistent with current trends. The ADAC also said so-called ‘supercredits’ for makers of low-emission vehicles do nothing to reduce overall climate changing emissions.
