Reducing carbon emissions – review of emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles

Road transport is key to delivering the goals of the European Green Deal. This includes the targets of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 and achieving climate neutrality by 2050.

The current EU rules on CO2 emission standards are vital for reducing emissions from new heavy-duty vehicles. As announced in the smart and sustainable mobility strategy, the Commission will review this legislation and will set more ambitious emission-reduction targets for such vehicles.

Mortgage credit – review of EU rules

EU rules on mortgage credit apply to loans made to consumers for buying residential property that is used as collateral.

  • adapt the rules to the digital environment
  • foster cross-border provision of mortgage credit.

It may also explore how to strengthen consumer protection in case of economic disruptions such as COVID-19 and how to boost the uptake of energy-efficient mortgages.
