Denmark to ban new fossil fuel cars by 2035

The Danish government has launched a climate and air pollution package called “together for a cleaner world”, which includes 38 initiatives. The country aims to ban sales of petrol and diesel cars by 2030 and sales of plug-in hybrids by 2035. This should be enough to achieve a fossil-free car fleet by 2050. This would reduce annual CO2 emissions by 7 million tonnes. They also intend to set up a scrapping premium for diesel cars.

Besides transport measures, the package also includes initiatives to promote precision farming with the ambition to reduce ammonia emissions, and improved monitoring of sulphur emissions from the shipping sector.
