CO2 limits for cars: key to climate protection and energy security

Michael Müller-Görnert
Cars still cause a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions in Europe. In its draft "Fit for 55" package, the Commission formulates for the first time an EU-wide date for phasing out internal combustion engines and more ambitious CO2 limits for new cars. But these are not strict enough.
The war in Ukraine is a frightening reminder of the impact of our dependence on fossil fuels. For too long, we have relied on oil and gas to keep flowing, driving consumption ever higher – regardless of where the raw materials come from. Given the sharp rise in energy prices and the threat of supply bottlenecks, it's clear that things can't go on like this.
