Euro 7: opportunity or threat?

On Tuesday, ECR environment coordinator Alexandr Vondra will host a public hearing on the Euro 7 emissions standard proposal.

Attendees include experts from environmental NGOs; transport trade unions; and the automotive industry, who will gather to debate the economic, technical, environmental, and social aspects of Euro 7. The proposal, which is part of the European Commission’s Green Deal, aims to develop stricter emissions standards for all petrol and diesel cars, vans, lorries and buses. It will likely be the final air quality regulation for petrol and diesel cars before the shift to zero-emission vehicles in 2035. As Euro 7 covers brakes and tyres emissions, it has an impact on EVs too. The ECR Group is of the opinion that the proposal should be softened and the entry into force postponed. The ECR Group can only support a proposal which is realistic and feasible and does not compromise an affordable individual mobility in Europe.

When: Tuesday @ 9:00 - 12:00

Where: SPAAK 6B1
