In Belgium, parliamentary representatives of the independent capital region have adopted the final version of the city’s climate protection plan, which includes a ban on diesel vehicles from 2030 and petrol vehicles from 2035.

The announcement from the European Unions' seat in the Brussels Capital Region will underpin the independently-governed state's efforts to achieve carbo-neutrality by 2050, with air pollution and climate change in check.

The self-governing state has made the move ahead of plans to go carbon-neutral by 2050 – the city is heavily congested and suffers from poor air quality during peak periods.

The state suggests drivers switch to battery-powered hybrid or electric vehicles or adopt alternatives such as hydrogen or biofuels.
