  • European auto parts makers are undermining efforts to decarbonise the transport sector by lobbying against climate-friendly EU policies, a new analysis by the climate thinktank InfluenceMap has claimed.
  • The analysis is particularly critical of the organisations’ campaigns against the EU’s proposed plans to phase out petrol and diesel cars by 2035, and the promotion of e-fuels as a means to extend the life of internal combustion engine vehicles.
  • The EU is pushing for stricter emissions standards on internal combustion engine vehicles by 2030.
