Denmark wants to abandon ICE cars by 2030

With a corresponding appeal, the country came forward to the European Union.

At a meeting of the EU Environment Ministers, Denmark made proposals for phasing out cars with classic internal combustion engines. It is noted that 10 countries that are members of the European Union have already supported this call.

Thus, the European Commission wants to make Europe the first climate neutral continent by 2050, but Denmark claims that for this the transport sector must reduce its emissions. The EU’s goal is to reduce carbon emissions by 40% by 2030, while the European Commission plans to reduce them to zero by 2050 in an attempt to stop global warming.

As far back as October 2018, Denmark announced that by 2030 it would ban the sale of all cars running on fossil fuels, but later abandoned this idea because it was contrary to EU rules.

Dan Jorgensen’s new proposal by Danish Minister of Climate and Energy now includes allowing individual states to ban sales of diesel and gasoline cars, saying that this, we hope, will put pressure on the European Commission to completely abandon fossil fuel vehicles in the region .

Jorgensen said it’s important for the EU to communicate its long-term strategic directions to car manufacturers and that Denmark will create an alliance with 10 countries that support its phase-out strategy for diesel and gasoline cars to put more pressure on the EU.
