Joint statement by T&E, EEB and Shipbreaking Platform:Ships regardless of their flag should not be allowed to call at any EU port without a ship recycling license to incentivise sustainable ship recycling, a European Commission report recommends.
- Le Groupe PSA s’engage vis-à-vis de ses clients en publiant les résultats de consommation en usage réel de 30 modèles cœur de gamme. Ces résultats sont issus du protocole d’essais défini avec les ONG Transport & Environment (T&E) et France Nature Environnement (FNE), audités par Bureau Veritas. Ce protocole fiable et reproductible, permet de mesurer la consommation en usage réel des clients PSA.
Joint statement by PSA Group and NGOs T&E and FNE on the release of official real-world fuel consumption measurements for Peugeot, Citroën and DS vehicles. French version here
Giving national parliaments a say on the EU-Canada trade deal (CETA) greatly strengthens the legitimacy of such agreements, and there has never been a time when this was needed more, environmental NGO Transport & Environment (T&E) has said. Responding to today’s European Commission statement that CETA will be proposed as a ‘mixed’ agreement and will need to be ratified by national parliaments, T&E said the decision follows the revised negotiation mandate granted by EU member states in 2011 and numerous statements by governments including those of Germany and Austria.
Brussels-based green NGOs  have urged the European Commission to push on with its 2030 climate legislation – despite the uncertainty in the wake of the UK referendum result.
Remarks by Transport & Environment executive director Jos Dings to the European Parliament committee of inquiry into emission measurements in the automotive sector (EMIS)
CO2 targets for 2021 for new cars will be based on an improved test, the WLTP (Worldwide harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure), after a decision today by the European Council and the European Commission. Sustainable transport group Transport & Environment (T&E) welcomes the decision as the conversion methodology will limit how much carmakers can manipulate tests to meet 2021 CO2 limits for new cars.
Greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector have grown for the first time since 2007 while those of other sectors of the economy have decreased, data released today by the European Environment Agency (EEA) revealed. The EEA’s report on EU-wide trends in greenhouse gas emissions in 2014 plainly shows that transport has now become the single biggest emitter of greenhouse gases in Europe.
A levy on nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions with revenues earmarked to fund the uptake of NOx abatement measures is the most promising tool to reduce these ship emissions by up to 70%, a new study by environmental consultancy IVL and CE Delft reveals. The study, commissioned by Transport & Environment (T&E), identifies for the first time the policy options available at the EU level to regulate ship NOx emissions in the EU seas and compares them with the measures to be taken under the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). In addition to a NOx levy with a fund, the study identified two other EU-level policy tools: mandatory slow steaming of ships (with a levy and fund as an alternative compliance option) and a stand-alone levy on emitted NOx.
Carmakers will have to provide more realistic fuel economy figures for their new cars as of 2018 thanks to the introduction of a new CO2 laboratory test (WLTP – Worldwide harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure). Sustainable transport group Transport & Environment (T&E) welcomes the decision reached last night between member states, the European Commission and the European Parliament.
