It’s a colossal plan, but one that still has to go through a number of stages. The European Commission presented, Wednesday, July 14, a comprehensive legislative package to reduce CO emissions2 by 55% by 2030. Among the proposals: the expansion of the European carbon market (Emissions Trading System, ETS) to road and air transport, ban on cars with combustion engines, implementation of a border levy of the European Union (EU) for imported products that do not meet the same environmental standards as their community competitors …

All these proposals have yet to be negotiated with the twenty-seven member states and MEPs. Can they succeed as is? What exactly is the schedule? What are the oppositions or criticisms addressed to the text? What concrete implications could these proposals have on the daily life of European citizens? Virginie Malingre, our correspondent in Brussels, answers your questions from 4.30 p.m.
