The Commission has welcomed the first EU standards to reduce pollution from trucks. On 19 February, the European Parliament and the Council reached provisional agreement on a Regulation setting strict CO2 emission standards for trucks, for the first time in the EU. The deal follows the agreement reached in December on new CO2 emission standards for cars and light vans in the EU for the period after 2020. Under the agreement, emissions from new trucks will have to be 30% lower in 2030 compared to the 2019 emissions.
