EU environment ministers ignore IPCC report

Under pressure from the automobile industry and the German government in particular, EU environment ministers are sabotaging our chances to save the climate. They agreed on weak targets for CO2 emissions from cars and light commercial vehicles and demanded only a marginal improvement to the EU Commission's proposal.

Green light for sustainable mobility

Too often, policymaking is dominated by cars and aimed at reducing road congestion, rather than at the broader challenge of a transition towards a sustainable transport sector.
