On 1 December 2021, Executive Vice-President Timmermans will have a debate with Members of the TRAN Committee on the ‘Fit for 55’ legislative package, which aims to implement the Union’s goal of moving towards a sustainable society. The transport sector is one of the sectors that has proved challenging to decarbonise.

The package therefore includes many elements that affect the transport sector, such as the proposed inclusion of the maritime and road transport sectors in the EU ETS system with measures to reduce and offset international aviation emissions, introduction of a mandate for the uptake of sustainable alternative fuels for the aviation and maritime sectors, phasing-out of the internal combustion engine and the roll-out of alternative fuel infrastructure.

The debate will take place on Wednesday afternoon, 1 December 2021 and will be webstreamed.
