European Commission proposes Clean Mobility Package

10 November 2017

The European Commission has proposed new emissions targets in a Clean Mobility Package, comprising various measures including a Clean Vehicles Directive which promotes the uptake of sustainable transport solutions in public procurement. The Package is intended to contribute to the EU's commitments under the Paris Agreement, under which it must achieve a 40% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030.


In addition to the Clean Vehicles Directive, the Package proposes new CO2 standards for car manufacturers, an action plan for alternative fuels infrastructure, revised approaches to freight and passenger coach services and an initiative on batteries. The Clean Vehicles Directive includes targets for Member States, regions and cities aimed at using public procurement to stimulate an EU-wide market for low-emissions vehicles.

The announcement of the Clean Mobility Package coincides with the COP23 international climate conference in Bonn (Germany), and the Package will go through the EU's co-decision process in the coming months.
