The Secretariat of the Commission for a Transition to Green Passenger Cars

As a part of the government’s ambition to reduce the domestic emission of green-house gases by 70 percent relative to the emission level in 1990, a commission for a transition to green passenger cars has been set up.

The commission has been tasked with delivering a concrete strategy for ensuring that the sale of gasoline and diesel cars is discontinued from 2030 onwards, while simultaneously ensuring that the current car related tax revenue is maintained.

The commission is chaired by Anders Eldrup and consists of five other external members: Brita Bye from Statistisk Sentralbyrå, Otto Anker Nielsen from DTU, Ninette Pilegaard from DTU, Mogens Fosgerau from UCPH, and Teis Vegge from DTU. Further, the commission consists of four deputy permanent secretaries from the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Taxation, the Ministry of Transport and Housing, and the Ministry of Climate, Energy and Utilities, respectively.

A secretariat consisting of representatives from the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Taxation, the Ministry of Transport and Housing, the Ministry of Climate, Energy and Utilities, and the Danish Energy Agency supports the work of the commission.
