Gap to produce sufficient numbers of EVs to comply with the law in 2020
  • Memorandum to the Belgian Presidency

    We urge the Belgian presidency of the EU to take a firm stance on the Common Transport Policy.

    The second half of the year 2001 offers the Belgian Presidency a unique opportunity to redirect EUtransport policy into line with other EU policy areas.

    Developments in the first half of the year have raised transport policy high onto the European political agenda. The adoption of the sustainable development strategy by the European Commission and the discussion at the Gothenburg summit together show a powerful new political will developing across Europe to move transport towards sustainability. The Belgian presidency now has a rare opportunity to ride the crest of this wave and push Europe towards sustainable transport.
