On 10 September 2018, the European Parliament’s Committee on Environment, which is responsible for this Directive Proposal, decided in favour of ambitious targets covering higher CO2 emission limits than comprised in the proposal presented by the Commission. From the Chamber of Labour’s point of view, this is a positive development as the Commission’s proposal does not contain enough ambitious measures to reduce passenger car emissions. The opinion of the Committee on Transport and Tourism would have provided for even weaker targets than the Commission proposal. Hence, the Chamber of Labour welcomes the decision of the Committee on Environment, even if there is room for improvement.
