THE HDV CO2 EMISSIONS REDUCTION STRATEGY: WHAT POTENTIAL FOR DECARBONISING EU TRANSPORT?

SAVE THE DATE

Programme

What potential for decarbonising EU transport?

Reducing Europe’s CO2 emissions is a key priority for a sustainable future. Commercial transport – trucks and buses – is rightly expected to play a role in this reduction. To rise to the challenge, we must make sure that the correct regulatory framework exists, while ensuring the competitiveness of European industry. Innovations coupled with improving well-known technologies will drive European transport systems forward.

This year, top policy-makers and stakeholders will gather at the European Transport Forum in Brussels for a high-level debate on these and other related questions.
