The European Commission has proposed a set of policy initiatives under the European Green Deal, to make Europe the first climate neutral continent in the world by 2050. This includes the proposal for an increased 2030 climate policy target, with emission reductions of at least 55 % compared to 1990. The Commission has also proposed to amend current legislation on climate protection, including emission standards for cars, to reach these newly proposed climate targets. On 29 October 2020, the Commission published the inception impact assessment (IIA) on the amendment of the EU regulation setting CO2 emission standards for cars and vans.
This is the DVGW's response.
