Extracts from the press conference by Antonio Tajani, on greening transport

66 views

The European Commission put forward, on 8 July 2008, a package of new "Greening Transport" initiatives to steer transport towards sustainability. The first initiative is a strategy to ensure that the prices of transport better reflect their real cost to society, so that environmental damage and congestion can gradually be reduced in a way that boosts the efficiency of transport and ultimately the economy as a whole. The second initiative is a proposal to enable Member States to help make this happen through more efficient and greener road tolls for lorries, with the revenue to be used to reduce environmental impacts from transport and cut congestion. The third initiative is a communication to reduce noise from rail freight. The package also includes an inventory of existing EU measures on greening transport and a communication on the additional greening transport initiatives that the Commission will take before the end of 2009.
