The world economies negotiate the total extinction of diesel and gasoline cars in 2040


In order to accelerate the decarbonisation of the energy mix and road transport, COP27 has a series of actions on the table to effectively reduce emissions. Among them, the proposal of set the year 2040 as the expiration date for the sale of combustion vehicles (diesel and gasoline) globally. The agreement would set two different dates, either 2035 or 2040, and the proposal would therefore be closely aligned with the regulations approved by the European Union two weeks ago.

The solution agreed by the negotiators of the European Council (EU Member States), the European Parliament and the European Comissionwas part of the first legislative package ‘Fit for 55’, which also includes ‘clean’ transport within the European Union in 2050, in which year the circulation of any type of car that pollutes will be prohibited. But it will be before, in 2035, when All sales of new cars and vans with a combustion engine will be prohibited.

The climate summitwhich started on November 6 in Egypt, has a valid precedent in the European agreement to lay the foundations for its proposal, which will have to be seen if it materializes in a real pact in the coming days. Throughout this week, the main economies of the world will meet for, among other actions, set a common date elimination of polluting vehicles, in accordance with the Paris Agreement.

It is of the utmost importance that some uniform conditions and schedules so that the entire automotive industry works in the same direction and can focus, in its entirety, on the energy transition. Otherwise, it can lead to the appearance inequalities in the market and competition between companies in the sector can be harmed.

Global ecological transition

The plan agreed upon in the framework of COP27, which continues the Advance Agenda approved in the COP26 (Glasgow), includes 25 actions innovative ways to reduce emissions, make clean technologies cheaper and enhance food security. In addition to the aforementioned proposal, there is also the acceleration of the construction of, at least, 100 hydrogen valleys and 50 ‘net zero’ industrial plants on a large scale.

Also, it will promote the creation of common definitions to adjust the low or near-zero emission steelthe sustainable batteries and green hydrogen. In this way, you can help channel your hefty investments and ensure their transparency and credibility. Another of the actions is to stimulate the global demand for green industrial goodsthrough aid, both public and private, and strengthen financial and technological assistance to strengthen the transition of emerging and developing countries.
