FRANKFURT/BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The European Commission will propose that the European Union further tighten its limits for auto emissions, German newspaper the Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported on Friday.

The newspaper, citing an internal paper it had obtained, said the Commission would propose that in 2030, the average carbon dioxide emissions of new cars should be 50% below 2021 levels. The bloc’s current plan is for a 37.5% reduction in 2030, from 2021 levels.

A spokeswoman for the Commission declined to comment.

Germany’s car industry, the EU’s biggest, will resist the move, with the nation’s auto association VDA saying that it would firmly reject a further tightening of the targets.

According to an internal document seen by Reuters, the Commission more broadly will propose that the EU sets a 2030 target of cutting its net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% against 1990 levels. The bloc’s current 2030 target is for a 40% cut in emissions, against 1990 levels. [nL8N2G81R5]
