Publication - October 20, 2010
Greenpeace EU’s independent report demonstrates that if the EU set a series of progressive CO2 emission standards for cars and vans up to 2030, oil consumption in Europe would fall by eight percent by 2030, compared to business as usual. This step would eliminate completely the need for imports of oil from dangerous and dirty sources, cut Europe’s CO2 emissions by 186million tonnes and deliver savings of $42billion per year on crude oil imports.
