â€ťWith our proposals we are not only protecting the climate and saving consumers money,â€ť Commissioner Connie Hedegaard said. â€śWe are also boosting innovation and competitiveness in the automotive sector. And we will create substantial numbers of jobs as a result. This is a clear win-win situation for everyone. This is one more important step towards a competitive, low-carbon economy. More CO2 reductions beyond 2020 need to be prepared and these will be considered in consultation with stakeholders.â€ť Actually, it sounds like itâ€™s a win-win-win situation (a benefit for all those who rely on a livable climate, a benefit for new car consumers, and a job-creation booster).
The targets already exist in legislation but have hitherto been without law for implementation. The regulations proposed by the Commission establish the methods by which the targets will be achieved.
