IRU/EUCONFERENCE - Fit for 55: the Road Ahead

Date

10 May 2022

Transport

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.

Following last year’s IRU-EU Conference on Fit for 55 and its implications for road transport, the next conference will focus on EU’s current plans for alternative fuel infrastructure and supporting road transport operators to scale up green technologies.

Amidst general concerns on increasing costs for mobility and logistics operators and on the lack of timely alternatives, does the current stage of the Fit for 55 debate show opportunities for the sector?

Join us and leading figures from EU institutions, governments, shippers and the wider road transport industry to debate two key topics:

  • Fit for 55 – Is the EU ready to roll out alternative fuel infrastructure?
  • Fit for 55 – Is the EU ready to incentivise the decarbonisation of road transport?
