The Council today gave its green light for stronger and wider road charging rules (Eurovignette directive) to incentivise cleaner and more efficient transport operations. The revised law includes a new scheme to address CO2 emissions to reduce transport’s carbon footprint in line with the European Green Deal and the Paris Agreement.
“These new road pricing rules and a new regime to tackle CO2 emissions are an important step forward in meeting the EU’s climate objectives. Boosting the use of the cleanest and most fuel-efficient vehicles will make transport more sustainable.”
Jernej Vrtovec, Slovenian Minister for Infrastructure, President of the Council
