Demand tough fuel efficiency standards for Europes cars

Over a quarter of Europe’s carbon emissions come from transport, the majority of these from cars. Car makers have failed to deliver on their own targets on emissions and now the European Commission are proposing legally-binding targets. The car industry is fighting hard to avoid these mandatory targets but these targets must be tough enough if they are going to have an effect on climate change. The Commission are asking for your opinion on what their policy should be. Tell them that you want tough mandatory and long-term targets that will significantly reduce the impact of the car on our climate.Take action before 30th June
Find your MEP and tell them what you think.
