    Road transport is one of the few sectors with rapidly rising emissions. Emissions from the sector increased by 26% between 1990 and 2008, according to the European Commission. But there also are signs of hope. Car makers are well on track to meet the EU's 2015 target of cutting average car emissions to 130 g of CO2/km. Now the EU is preparing to take the next step, by setting a 2020 target. The European Commission will soon launch a proposal to improve fuel efficiency by a further 27% for cars — to 95g per km -- and by 28% for vans — to 147 g per km. Both regulations, recently discussed in the press, make the 2020 CO2 targets legally binding and define how to meet the limits. MEP Chris Davies invites you to a lunch and panel debate to discuss the impact at a critical time for Europe’s economy.
