Air quality - EUROCITIES letter to Commissioner Bieńkowska on Euro 6 emission test procedure

The Euro standards on vehicle emissions limits are first and foremost designed to improve urban air quality. This is a serious challenge for many cities across the EU. But real-world emissions from cars on the roads today are often much higher than those indicated by the official type-approval test results. We are calling for a quick finalisation of the new Realworld Driving Emissions (RDE) test procedure for the Euro 6 emission standard. The new test procedure must be effective and put...

EUROCITIES position on the Europe 2020 mid-term review

EUROCITIES statement on the revision of the National Emissions Ceilings (NEC) Directive

European cities are fully committed to improving air quality, as it is very important for the health and quality of life of our citizens. While we constantly take local action to promote cleaner air, many factors affecting air pollution are outside of our control. More ambitious national and European policies are needed to make real progress. The proposed revision of the National Emissions Ceilings (NEC) Directive can facilitate this as the EU instrument to guide member states efforts on...
