ACEA appears to be opposing strands of climate change regulations within the EU. They have been particularly active in their engagement with EU GHG standards, in communication with the public and policymakers, emphasizing the potential for loss of competitiveness and the threat to growth, especially as the industry reaches technological limitations. Its president, further suggested the standards that affect diesel engines were self-defeating as they prevented fleet renewal. ACEA have also reportedly advocated against pending 2025 vehicle C02 targets, with their Secretary General, Erik Jonnaert emphasizing the high cost of these policies. ACEA have shown some transparency through disclosing their membership, including key committees. However, they have notably failed to disclose their consultations comments on revisions of the EU GHG emissions regulations for sectors outside the EU's ETS.
