Transport, which accounts for approximately a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions in the EU, will play an important role in the EU’s new emissions reduction target by 2030 and its climate neutrality objective for 2050. The Green Deal establishes that in order to achieve climate neutrality, transport sector emissions will need to be reduced by 90% by 2050. In this sense, the European Commission recently presented its Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy, which aims to put European transport on track for the future.
In order to ensure reductions in road transport emissions, for example, it will be necessary to revise several policy instruments. Some of these include the CO2 emissions standards regulation for cars and vans with a possible separate revision for heavy-duty vehicles, as well as the Renewable Energy Directive to support the large-scale deployment of sustainable renewable and low-carbon fuels.
The objective of this webinar is to examine the necessary legislative changes to decarbonize the transport sector in line with the 2030 and 2050 targets. The panel will also analyze the role of synthetic and advanced alternative fuels from renewable energy sources in reducing road, aviation and maritime transport emissions.
