Car Industry Failing on Climate Change Commitments

The European Federation for Transport and Environment (T&E) today released a report showing that the car industry’s voluntary agreement with the EU to cut average CO2 emissions from passenger cars is failing to deliver. The report says that the 140g/km target set for 2008 can only be reached if the industry now makes unprecedented emissions cuts. It concludes that EU legislation is now needed to create both legally-binding limits as well as incentives to encourage innovation in low-emissions technology and to boost the market for cars that pollute less.
