Comments on the Commission European Strategy on Low-Emission Mobility

On July 20th, 2016 the European Commission presented its European Strategy for Low-Emission Mobility. FuelsEurope welcomes the proposed integrated approach involving all relevant stakeholders, and the holistic view recognizing that fuels, vehicles, infrastructures, transport management systems and consumers all play an integrated role.

We appreciate also the principle of a trajectory to achieve overtime a major reduction in GHG and air pollutants emitted in transport, whilst at the same time safeguarding the competitiveness of the EU industry and economy.

John Cooper, FuelsEurope Director General commented “FuelsEurope welcomes the comprehensive approach taken by the Commission including renewed commitments to technology neutrality and transparency but there is a great deal of work to do in designing the regulatory measures, and this will need care to ensure that the end result meets Europe’s objectives, in a cost-effective manner.”
