Today’s decision is an important milestone to lower the cost of driving – with projected fuel savings of up to thousands of euros over the next decade – and push car makers to place low-emission and fuel-efficient cars on the market.

Today, consumer groups remind EU decision-makers that only with swift EU action on CO2 emissions will consumers have wider choice in choosing fuel-efficient and low-carbon cars (such as electric ones). The groups ask this as EU institutions meet for a fourth round of negotiations to set CO2 emission targets for the next decade – the latest reports from Parliament indicate these negotiations are stalling.
Our work areas
Consumers are increasingly willing to buy sustainable products, especially energy-efficient ones, in order to minimise their impact on the environment. All too often though, confusing information and a great variety of industry claims make this difficult. What makes it even more complicated is the lack of enough sustainable products in EU shops and that they are barely identifiable.
- Improve the sustainability of products by reducing their impact on the environment
- Give consumers the possibility to make informed and sustainable choices between different products using independent and verified labels (such as the Ecolabel). Unsustainable products to be taken off the market
- Reduce the carbon footprint of transport in Europe while ensuring consumers benefit from improved information and cost reductions
