Since 1998, the European Commission has tried to reduce cars greenhouse gas emissions by regulating the average CO2 emissions of new cars sales: from 180 CO2 gr/km in 1995, to 130 gr in 2015 and 95 gr in 2021. But this policy has proved largely inefficient. While the total greenhouse gas emissions in the European Union have diminished by 16% between 2000 and 2017, those from the transport sector, which account for one fourth of the total emissions, have increased by 3%. Road transport is by far the main culprit with cars representing 60% of total transport emissions.
