The 2nd IRU-EU Road Transport Conference will take place on 29 February 2012 in Brussels to address “Efficient Solutions for Making Road Transport Greener”.

Brussels – The International Road Transport Union (IRU), in partnership with the European Commission (EC) and the EU Danish Presidency, will, in public-private partnership, address the theme “Efficient Solutions for Making Road Transport Greener” in Brussels, Belgium on 29 February 2012. 

The Conference will feature a diverse panel of speakers including IRU President, Janusz Lacny, and high-level representatives from EU institutions, including the EC Vice-President and Transport Commissioner Siim Kallas, as well as the EU Transport Council President and Danish Minister for Transport, Henrik Dam Kristensen.

The Conference will bring together over 400 political, transport and trade leaders from EU Member States around potential solutions, challenges and opportunities to further green road transport through innovation such as the European Modular Concept, doubling the use of collective passenger transport and the IRU strategy to achieve sustainable development, in the framework of the EU objectives and actions as defined in the EC transport White Paper. 

This year, the IRU’s traditional Spring Cocktail will immediately follow the Conference to provide a dynamic and spontaneous environment to allow participants to network and continue the dialogue on which solutions could prove to be most effective in achieving better rather than more road transport.
