Federal Government has great catch-up for CO2 emissions-government

New cars, according to EU specifications since the beginning of the year on average, only a maximum of 95 grams of CO2 per kilometer is driven. Not very exemplary, however, is the fleet of the German Federal Ministers and their State Secretary. Some tears the requirements from Brussels very clearly, as out of the answer of the Federal Environment Ministry to a small request of the FDP parliamentary group, which the Berlin day mirror had reported first. Especially diesel vehicles fall negative in statistics.

Thus, currently Federal Minister of Economics Julia KlOckner (CDU) can chauffeur in the climate-damaging government service car. Your Audi A8 diesel in LangVersion (Audi A8 L 50 TDI Quattro) rams 191 grams of CO2 per kilometer. Dorothee Bar (CSU), Minister of State for Digitization, is in a Mercedes-Benz S 350D on the road, which causes 165 grams of CO2 per kilometer. In third place Chancellor’s Minister Helge Braun (CDU), whose BMW 730ld 150 grams CO2.

The other members of the Federal Government at first glance clearly climate-friendly cars: Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier (CDU), Minister of Justice Christine Lambrecht (SPD) and Labor Minister Hubertus Heil (SPD) are chauffeured with Audi A8 plug-in hybrids, each 66 grams of CO2 Move the kilometer into the atmosphere. At the BMW 745 plug-in hybrid of Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer (CSU) there are 60 grams.

Plug-in-mog packs in company car fleets

However, the CO2 values of the plug-in hybrids lying under the EU specifications are likely to be significantly higher in reality, such as Barbara Metz, the Deputy Managing Director of the German Environmental Help (DUH), explains the daily mirror: “In our company car surveys we show Every year: the emissions of the company cars in real-footing are much higher for combustion vehicles and thus also the CO2 emissions, “she said to the Tagesspiegel. The plug-in hybrids are “on the paper a climatic world”, but on the street but “snap smucker”. Metz says that “currently used vehicles are often not loaded and the lion’s share of the route drove in combustion mode”. The CO2 emissions of a plug-in hybrid is multiple examinations above the good two to four times the manufacturer’s value.

As the only member of the Federal Government, Environment Minister Svenja Schulze (SPD) drives a pure electric car: a Mercedes EQC 400, which flows into the statistics with zero gram CO2. However, she also has a second car, a plug-in hybrid of BMW with an emission of 52 grams of CO2 per kilometer.

In addition, the Cabinet members are well received by a dozen so-called “specialized secured limousines” with a CO2 emission between 260 and 421 grams per kilometer. With these cars, among other things, Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU), Olaf Scholz (SPD), Horst Seehofer (CSU), Heiko Maas (SPD) and Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (CDU) be on the road. You have to be protected especially.

The FDP economic politician Sandra Weeser, who had requested the overview, expressed sharp criticism of the non-climate-friendly service vehicles: “If a federal government as the subject of climate protection requires much of the people, then government members and ministries must be the first to do here , calls you in the daily mirror.

Weeser also referred to that some state secretaries even drive company cars with a CO2 emission of more than 190 grams per kilometer. The Audi A8 50 TDI by CDU Business State Secretary Marco Hiking Wait about 194 grams CO2, the Mercedes-Benz S 350D by CDU Business State Secretary Thomas Meibis arrives at 190 grams of CO2. Both vehicles as well as those of eleven other state secretaries are above the EU standard of 95 grams.

Climate sins also in the civilian area

Also from the aim to equip at least 20 percent of the federal fence in the civilian area with electric cars, the government is still miles away. In the fleet of about 32.500 vehicles there are only 405 electric cars, which corresponds to 1.24 percent. The lounger also that “predetermined depreciation periods or leases of leases” must be met, the Ministry of the Environment declares. However, there is a permanent exchange of a part of the vehicle fleets.

The CO2 emissions of these fleets, well-informed without buses or trucks, are particularly climatic: the 29 vehicles of the Ministry of Family Excess on average 235 grams of CO2 per kilometer. Shortly behind the good 10.000 Cars of the Federal Ministry of the Interior with section 230 grams of CO2 per kilometer. The Ministry of Health (214 grams) and the Foreign Office (213 grams) are also well above the 200-he brand.

  1. Politicians are not role models? Or are you rather corrupt business-facility? Unfortunately, in Germany, the latter is more common on these “role models”. When Tesla finally produces in Germany, at the latest then there is no reason to put on ancient technologies made in Germany.

  2. PHEV – a scandal. Placant illustrates: 2 engines are carried out by the area, the hybrid is a narrow gauge solution for Zauder & bargain hunters (which can not be expected) and: for subsidies in this regard will be coming generations again to read the Levites. Moreover: PHEV = second largest scam in humanity (Fritz Indra).

  3. Especially our politicians should go ahead with good example!
    And not only that.
    You should also turn damage from the German people.
    Do that?
    No, I say.
    Leasing contracts are an obstacle reason? That’s folk dilation.
    And still the worst and dirty burners are built by German car manufacturers.
    It’s just cheaper to make a burner.
    An internal combustion engine whose raw materials come from South America is produced for 300 €. The profit margin is therefore enormous.
    The somewhat more complicated attachments are mostly from Asia, where they are extremely cheaply produced by forced laborers. So that no direct connection to the German car turns is visible here, there are much small manufacturers and distributors, which are so invisibly embedded in the supply chain, so that the board members and shareholders do not need to worry about these evil excesses of capitalism.
    As long as the Monsquancy Recorders (VDA) and Energy Turner (VNG) CDU / CSU / SPD – so our government – advises, will continue to operate a confusion.
    “Damage damage from the German people” does not go out afterwards.
    These parties should be deselected and drawn to account for each individual.

  4. I think the boys and girl in the Berlin politics does not matter what’s going on behind
    The main thing you can knock proverbs every day

  5. As long as the CSU / CDU and SPD are in the government, nothing will do here.
    According to the latest research, it is also blocked in the Ministry of Economic Affairs against the energy transition.
    Even a State Besecretary, Nicolai Ziegler, in the contribution of contrasts on 15.07.2121, from the Ministry of Economic Affairs of Mr. Altmaier, is active here in the energy transmitters.
    Mr. Ziegler himself is honorary chairman of “reasoning force”, which bring with invalid events civic movement to demonstrate against wind turbines.
    The expert has long been pulled back because it had called one hundred times too high values, this was technically even occupied.
    Nevertheless, this Secretary of State continues and even uses the official facility.
    He also sent a recommendation to his Minister of Economics, which brought the to brake the wind industry. That’s why it’s not going here.
    And the like it has to do with the mobility turn. Again, the government is blocked.
    There is still: Which German car-China partial importer could use such secure company cars?
