Emmanuel Desplechin said: “The Commission’s proposal to end the use of multipliers is good news for the fight against climate change because it ends what was essentially an accounting trick to hide the EU’s continued dependence on fossil fuels for transport,” External link

Ellen Roberts said: “Australia lags behind the rest of the world when it comes to the transition to electric vehicles, but there are opportunities to turn this around so more people can share in the benefits of clean and quiet vehicles that are cheaper to run and maintain,” “The success of Australia’s rooftop solar industry shows what is possible when governments incentivise consumers to make smart choices” External link

Huw Merriman commented: “Putting guarantees in place on infrastructure is crucial but one report after another flags concerns to Government about the provision of electric car charging infrastructure. Let ours be the last: it’s time that ministers set out the route map to delivering a network of services for everyone across the UK” External link

Wendel Trio commented: “While we keep witnessing the devastating impacts of climate change on people’s lives, the environment and our economy, we expect the EU to recognise the urgency to act and live up to the commitments made in the Paris Agreement. To limit temperature rise to 1.5°C, the EU would need to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 65%. The Commission proposal does increase the target to -58% which is good but this increase is not even halfway what is needed to make the package fit for 1.5 and in line with the Paris Agreement,” External link

bio-based Wednesday, July 28, 2021 7:57:00 AM CEST

Wendel Trio added: “It’s now Member States’ and the European Parliament’s’ roles to improve the different pieces of law and enable the EU to further overshoot the 55% emission reductions target towards -65%. Only with further ambition will the package be turned into a policy framework that will bring us all to the 1.5°C target,” External link

bio-based Wednesday, July 28, 2021 7:57:00 AM CEST

Wendel Trio concluded: “We need to make sure the transition is just and fair. This includes ensuring all revenues are directed to support climate action, with special attention to those who will suffer the consequences the most, both across the EU and in developing countries. Policies need to take into account social considerations, and not only be driven by a market logic, especially when industries keep being subsidised through the continuation of free pollution permits,” External link

Kris Peeters said: “Transport needs to go green as fast as possible. Sectors like construction, electricity generation, and agriculture now emit much less than they did in 1990, while transport emissions have increased by 33%. We need to act boldly to accelerate the transition to sustainable and more resilient transportation,” External link

Andreas Regnell says: “It is very promising that fossil-free electricity has the potential to replace fossil raw materials and thereby reduce emissions from Preem's hydrogen production when biofuel production increases. In order to meet Sweden's climate goals, it is crucial to find solutions through partnerships to restructure industrial processes with lower carbon dioxide emissions, it is also completely in line with Vattenfall's goal of enabling a fossil-free life within a generation,” External link

And in the next month or so, we will be ordering the first 120 battery electric double-deck buses for use in the large cities, with another 680 to follow in the coming years. The NTA and the public transport operators are stepping up to the climate challenge” External link
