Cities call for clean vans

Vans are the fastest growing road transport sector in the EU and a rising source of air and climate pollution, especially in urban areas. Yet, they benefit from less stringent CO2 targets than cars. 

T&E along with a number of major European cities including Paris, Lisbon and Amsterdam, have written to the European Commission asking it to prioritise zero-emission vans in the upcoming revisions of the CO2 standards Regulation and the Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Directive (AFID).
