Hi, is there already a legislation for the CO2 impact from producing cars (similar to the CO2 target from operating them)?

Dear dr_s_hg,

There is no GHG target for the production of vehicles, but I suggest having a look at DG CLIMA's website: http://ec.europa.eu/clima/policies/transport/index_en.htm
You could also try to contact them as well to check.

Targets are set for the CO2 tailpipe emissions of new cars, but not the car production phase.

There is an “end of life” directive (http://ec.europa.eu/environment/waste/elv/) aimed at making dismantling and recycling of vehicles more environmentally friendly.

I hope this information is helpful.

Kind regards,
