On the 2nd of May the European Commission will propose its first ever fuel efficiency standards for trucks.

Heavy duty vehicles represent 5% of all road vehicles but account for 25% of EU road CO2 emissions. Truck standards are therefore urgently needed. They will save hauliers money, help Europe meet its climate targets and kick start zero emission trucking. But, in order to fully deliver, standards must be both ambitious and well-designed.

Trucks are less than 5% of all road vehicles but emit around 30% of road transport CO2 emissions in the EU. Also in Germany heavy duty trucks and buses account for 30% of road CO2 emissions and this is projected to grow during the coming decades.

If done correctly, charging road users for their use of road infrastructure can contribute to the reduction of emissions from the transport sector. The European Commission is currently preparing its proposal for the review of the Eurovignette directive, which sets the parameters by which member states can toll roads. This revision provides an ample opportunity to link the Directive with Europe’s ambition to transition to low-emission mobility.
