The netherlands advocated more stringent CO2 standards cars

To achieve that, it would be manufacturers that are sufficient vehicles on the market that less, or no, greenhouse gas emissions can count on a bonus.

The EU environment ministers meet next week in Luxembourg together to create a joint position. That will not be easy, as some member states, including Germany, fear that overly ambitious objectives jobs is going to cost you.

The European Commission proposed a year ago for new cars in 2030 to 30 percent less CO2 is allowed to emit compared with 2021, and 2025 of 15 percent. The environment committee of the European Parliament wants to sharpen to, respectively, 45 and 20 percent. The netherlands sees it as a great improvement of the original proposal. The entire parliament will agree on Wednesday.

The tightening is deemed necessary to the klimaatdoelen of Paris.
