The European Commission is preparing to extend the European Union's CO2 emissions regulation for passenger cars and light-commercial vehicles out to 2025–2030.

The industrial sector is a significant contributor of stack emissions in India, from localised sources such as brick kilns and diesel generator sets, to large centralised facilities such as coal fired thermal power plants and oil refineries.

Air pollution is a huge and growing public health problem for the UK, and for London in particular.

A new report by UCL’s Institute for Sustainable Resources for Green Budget Europe outlines options for fiscal reform to tackle air pollution from diesel cars.

Official estimates suggest that over 3,000 deaths each year in London are attributable to air pollution, namely because of man-made toxic airborne particles. London’s pollution levels are also illegal.

The purpose of this briefing is to provide a summary of CO 2 emission levels of new passenger cars in the European Union (EU), based on the provisional data recently released by the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The annual European Vehicle Market Statistics Pocketbook offers statistical portrait of passenger car and light commercial vehicle fleets in the European Union from 2001—and, beginning with the 2014 edition, of the heavy-duty fleet as well. The emphasis is on vehicle technologies, fuel consumption, and emissions of greenhouse gases and other air pollutants.

The European Commission agreed on Wednesday to put forward a target to improve energy efficiency by 30 percent as part of a package of climate and energy policy for 2030, EU sources said.

Govt committee to suggest guidelines and prepare new 2025 standards

On July 11, 2012, the European Commission put forward two regulatory proposals that would implement mandatory 2020 CO2 emission targets for new passenger cars and light-commercial vehicles (vans). The proposals now need only be confirmed by the European Parliament and European Council to become law.
