On 29 June 2011, the Commission proposed a new seven-year EU budget (Multiannual Financial Framework, MFF) that covers EU public expenditure between 2014 and 2020. This paper summarises the transport-relevant parts of the MFF and attempts to check whether it can help ‘decarbonise’ the transport sector.
Questions and answers on the IMO's EEDI: what it does, how it works and what its significance is. Published to coincide with a critical vote at the IMO's Marine Environment Protection Committee in London, July 2011.
This paper demonstrates why and how the EU should use the opportunity of the upcoming review of the EU budget to move its €13bn-a year transport spending in a greener direction.

Ce briefing fournit une vue d'ensemble des mesures de réduction des émissions dues au transport dans la Directive européenne sur la qualité des carburants.
