EU agrees on stricter CO2 emission standards

The European Union decided to tighten CO2 emission standards for new passenger cars and light commercial vehicles (LCV). By 2030, new cars should emit on average 35 percent less CO2 compared to the current limits.

Poland, along with Germany, argued that the 30 percent level of reduction would be the best. Swedes proposed the highest reduction level of 50 percent, while Czechs said that even 30 percent target is too much.
