Proposal for Carbon Emissions Limit for Light Commercial Vehicles

The European Commission has proposed a reduction of the average CO 2 emissions of light commercial vehicles (vans) to 175 grams CO2 equivalent per kilometre. The proposal will be phased in from 2014 to 2016, and contains a long term emission reduction target of 135 g/km by 2020. The format of the proposed legislation is similar to the proposals on passenger cars agreed at the end of 2008.

Council Consensus on Industrial Emissions

The Council has reached political agreement on the adoption of a common position concerning the recast of the directive on integrated pollution prevention and control.

Large combustion plants will have to bring emissions limits in line with current Best Available Techniques (BAT) by 2016.
