MEPs back new CO2 emissions limits for cars and vans – Clune

March 28, 2019

Plans to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions from cars and vans by 2030 will have a positive impact on Ireland’s climate change record.

That’s the view of the Fine Gael MEP Deidre Clune who was talking about a vote this week in the European Parliament on new CO2 emissions limits for cars and vans.

As a result of the new rules in 2030, emissions from new cars will have to be thirty seven point five percent (37.5%) lower. And emissions from new vans will have to be thirty one percent (31%) lower compared to twenty twenty one (2021).

The new CO2 standards are all part of a stepping stone towards a climate-neutral economy.

Here’s Deidre Clune.
