The Polish automotive supply industry represented by SDCM, in the tie-up with CLEPA, the European Association of Automotive Suppliers, reaffirmed its commitment in the pursuit of CO2 emissions reduction, contributing to the decarbonisation of road transport in the European Union at an event in Brussels.
The event was hosted by Andrzej Grzyb MEP, and several representatives from Polish and Poland-based companies including Bosch, Lumag, BorgWarner and Valeo, were present to introduce a variety of technology solutions, stressing the need to take all technology options into account in upcoming CO2 legislation for cars and vans.
The European Parliament and Council of Member States are currently negotiating a new legislative proposal to reduce car emissions in the 2020-2030 timeframe. The legislation will have a large impact on the European automotive industry.
“Poland is a prominent automotive country in Europe with manufacturing plants located all across the country providing over 130.000 high-skilled jobs. We very much support that Europe builds on the strengths of its industry to tackle environmental issues. It should be our ambition that technology solutions continue to be developed, industrialized and manufactured here with us,” said Grzyb.
