What’s the healthiest replacement for Diesel?

30 June 2022

10:00 - 11:30 CEST


Air pollution from diesel road vehicles costs Europe billions every year. So what should we replace diesel with? After the European Parliament’s vote to end the sale of new diesel and petrol vehicles by 2035 – we ask what the healthiest replacement for diesel is, and what we can do to accelerate the transition.

This event launched a new study by independent researchers from CE Delft on the best alternative to diesel vehicles. Policy and industry specialists will discuss the study’s findings, and what needs to happen to make Europe the first diesel-free continent.
