Brussels announces agreement with Berlin on CO2-free car law – Businesses

The European Commission announced this Saturday an agreement for Germany to lift the last-minute veto to the negotiated and agreed legislation so that, from 2035, only cars that do not emit CO2 are sold in the EU.

“We reached an agreement with Germany on the future use of electrofuels in cars”, announced on Twitter the executive vice-president of the EC responsible for the European Green Pact, Frans Timmermans.

The Dutch politician added that now the community executive will work towards “enforcing the regulation on CO2 standards for cars as soon as possible” and that the Commission will “proceed quickly with the necessary legal measures to implement recital 11”.

On Friday, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz had already insisted that Berlin and Brussels could reach an agreement for the country to lift its veto.

“I know that journalism is also part of the entertainment industry and it seems silly to reach an agreement, but it will happen,” the German leader said jokingly at a press conference after the European summit in Brussels, when asked about Germany’s blockade of this emblematic measure of the European Union’s climate policy.
