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.
