The IRU EU Conference will be held online Wednesday 8 December from 13:00 to 15:00 (CET) and debate the EC’s Fit for 55 proposals

The European Commission’s Fit for 55 proposals aim to reduce CO₂ emissions by 55% by 2030, accelerating the EU’s plan to fully decarbonise by 2050.

Fit for 55 will have profound implications for commercial road transport, a sector which is committed to decarbonise. 

Amidst general concerns on increasing costs for mobility and logistics operators to 2030 and on the lack of timely alternatives, what are the opportunities for the sector? 

Join Ismail Ertug and Peter Liese, members of the European Parliament acting as rapporteurs on the alternative fuels infrastructure file and on the extension of the emission trading system (ETS) to road, representatives of national authorities and fuel suppliers, shippers and the wider road transport industry, to debate two fundamental questions:

  • Will Fit for 55 deployment be properly synchronised so that policy, vehicle technology, alternative fuels and infrastructure are ready for steep change over the coming decade?
  • How can road transport operators and the wider industry be incentivised to invest and embrace change?
