What are we working on?
To address these challenges at EU level, T&E works on making lorries more CO2 and fuel efficient, in particular through CO2 standards and the update of the weights and dimensions legislation to enable cleaner and safer design of lorries. The EU's new system of monitoring and reporting carbon emissions will be a key part of implmementing CO2 standards, and we aim to ensure maximum transparency as well as third-party testing to avoid a Dieselgate in trucking. The work on lorry efficiency is complemented by our work on road charging and fuel taxation. At the same time we reject claims that increasing the load capacity of lorries (megatrucks) contributes to greening road freight in any meaningful way.
