VDL humiliated as EU REVOLTS against plot to tax million of ‘poorest’ Europeans £370
Daily Express says EUROPEAN COMMISSION President Ursula von der Leyen has faced backlash from within the EU after proposing a green plan to tax millions of Europeans for heating and transportation.
MEPs will meet today to discuss the EU’S Fit for 55 plan, a set of proposals to revise and update the bloc’s green legislation as it scrambles to slash carbon emissions by 55 percent by 2030. It will involve proposals to reform the Emissions Trading System (ETS), a set of market-based incentives which limit emissions across various sectors.
While the scheme currently places a cap on industry emissions, last year, Ms von der Leyen and Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans pushed through with a plan to extend the ETS to private households.
