Svenska Dagbladet has gained access to documents revealing that Germany is pushing against EU countries that want more ambitious emission limits for trucks, saying carbon dioxide cuts should not go beyond 30 per cent, while the Netherlands wants a higher reduction in greenhouse gases.
Sweden, the third-largest maker of trucks in the EU, has not commented as yet but lawmakers will debate the proposed limits outlined by the European Commission and the European Parliament today. AB Volvo does not wish to comment other than to indicate that a 30 per cent cut or more by 2030 is “feasible”.
