Getting zero-emission trucks on the road

Trucks account for only 2% of the vehicles on the road. Yet they are responsible for 22% of road transport CO2 emissions in the EU.

And this trend is rising.

We cannot meet the Paris agreement without decarbonising road freight. The CO2 standards for trucks adopted earlier this year are a first step in the right direction. But we need to go beyond and shift to zero emission trucks as soon as possible.

The brand-new European Commission and the upcoming revision of the Alternative for Fuels Infrastructure Directive offer great opportunities to get zero-emission trucks on our road.

Join our discussion on Wednesday 19 February, at Autoworld Brussels. During the morning session we will talk about electrification for city deliveries and regional transport. In the afternoon will be discussed options that exist to power long-haul trucks.

Confirmed speakers include Daniel Mes (Cabinet member, Executive Vice-President Frans Timmermans), Artur Runge-Metzger (Director, DG CLIMA, European Commission) and Herald Ruijters (Director, DG MOVE, European Commission), as well as representatives of Volvo Trucks, Daimler Trucks, Deutsche Post and DB Schenker AG.
