The Council of Environment Ministers of the countries of the European Union is; managed, after long discussions, to find an agreement on the package of measures known as Fit for 55 proposed by the European Commission last year which will allow; the European Union to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels and to achieve neutrality; climate in 2050.
Inside the Fit for 55 package there are a series of measures that will make it possible to reduce CO2 emissions, including the much debated one of stopping the sale of endothermic cars from 2035. And finding an understanding on this issue not & egrave; it was easy. As we know, the green light of the European Parliament had highlighted a deep rift between the member countries.
Furthermore, speaking strictly of Italy, the government's position remarked by the ministers was to focus on neutrality technology to keep endothermic engines still alive and to move the date of the farewell to petrol and diesel from 2035 to 2040. In the last few hours, a compromise proposal had also arrived by Germany which provided for the possibility; to register endothermic models from 2035 as long as they only use biofuels or e-fuels.
In the end & egrave; An agreement has been found that satisfies the countries, including Italy, which were asking for greater flexibility; and the possibility; to also focus on alternative technologies to electricity . Therefore, on the topic of transport, the European Union has decided to increase the CO2 emission reduction targets of new cars and vans by 2030, bringing them to 55% for cars and 50% for vans. It also confirmed the target of CO2 emissions reduction by 100% by 2035 for new cars and vans .
However, in 2026 the Commission European will evaluate the progress made towards achieving the 100% emission reduction targets. At the same time, I will evaluate & agrave; the need to review these objectives taking into account technological developments, including with regard to plug-in hybrid technology and the importance of a viable and socially fair transition towards zero emissions.
In other words, 2026 will come verified if the transition process is proceeding as desired or if there will be; need to review the objectives by also focusing on other technologies such as hybrid.
The European environment ministers have also approved a five-year extension of the exemption from CO2 obligations granted to so-called & quot; niche & quot; producers, that is; those that produce less than 10 thousand cars every year, until the end of 2035. Now that it is; Once this agreement has been found, negotiations with the European Parliament can begin to reach an agreement on the final texts.
