Dieselgate 5 years on: What lessons have we learned?

High climate reduction targets set today can pave the way for a zero and low emission mobility tomorrow, highlighted the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) in comments to mark the fifth year anniversary of the Dieselgate scandal. Ambitious policy action is needed in our transport system to protect public health, consumers and the environment.

As climate and our health are both public goods, the increased climate ambition of the EU of a 55% target, announced in the first, health- focused State of the Union speech of Commission President von der Leyen is a responsible step to the right direction. It requires bold political actions in transport policy, setting 2035 as the EU-wide end date for sales of petrol and diesel cars and vans.  By lowering greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution levels, we can help the most vulnerable in the fight against COVID-19 and any other future pandemics.
