WWF CONTRIBUTION TO THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION CONSULTATION ON REDUCING CO2 FROM CARS PARKER EDWARD, 2007

 

In 2004, CO2 emissions from the transport sector accounted for 26% of the EU-25 total. Road transport was responsible for 86% of this sectoral contribution. Since 1990, the sector increased its energy consumption by about 30%, the largest growth of any energy-consuming sector. 

Given this context, WWF strongly welcomes the European Commission’s intention to table as soon as possible a proposal for a legislative framework for improving vehicle efficiency and reducing CO2 from cars in the European Union to help meet the common objectives of staying below 2°C global warming.
