All citizens, organisations and experts are welcome to contribute to the public consultation on CO2 emissions for cars and vans and the revision of performance standards. The Commission is seeking to gather inputs from a broad range of stakeholders, namely national and sub-national administrations in the EU, businesses, trade associations, non-governmental organisations, citizens, workers associations and trade unions, consultancies, think tanks, research and academic institutions.

With the Communication on stepping up the EU’s 2030 climate ambition, the Commission is proposing an EU economy-wide net greenhouse gas emissions reduction target of at least 55% below 1990 levels by 2030. To implement this plan, the Commission is proposing to revise the key relevant energy and climate legislation by June 2021.

This consultation looks for stakeholder input on the revision of the Regulation on CO2 standards for cars and vans. The Commission looks for inputs on the ambition level of the targets, the incentive scheme for zero- and low-emission vehicles and design elements of the regulatory system to possibly take into account contributions of renewable and low carbon fuels.

This consultation on the Regulation on CO2 standards for cars and vans is simultaneously published alongside consultations on the EU ETS Directive, the Effort Sharing Regulation and the LULUCF Regulation.
