Green economy, Italy the EU’s leader in gas-fueled cars
Report of the Common Assembly on Green Economy 2018 presented in Rimini
Italy is the European country with the highest number of vehicles with a power feeding other than traditional fuels (gasoline and diesel). They account for 12.7% of the total, which is almost nine percentage points more than in Germany. This is a finding of the Report of the Common Assembly on Green Economy 2018 presented in Rimini on Tuesday.
The report specifies that such a result is due to the expansion of the gas-powered fleet (methane and LPG), which with 3.16 million vehicles (including cars, light commercial and heavy duty vehicles) represents 53% of the European gas fleet.
The report, presented in the scope of Ecomondo, was drawn up by the National Council for Green Economy, consisting of 66 businesses and the Sustainable Development Foundation.
“Italy is not at year zero in green economy,” commented Minister of the Environment, Sergio Costa, who said that “investing in green economy means doing circular economy, and the circular economy must replace the linear economy because the resources are limited.”
