Press Release – FuelsEurope Vision Paper on the Future of Transport
FuelsEurope released today its Vision Paper on the Future of Transport in the EU. With this Paper the refining industry, currently supplying 94% of all fuels for transport, aims at constructively contributing to the future of transport debate by presenting a realistic, sustainable and cost-efficient vision for the EU. FuelsEurope recommends on the basis of the technology neutrality principle to take a holistic approach including low-carbon fuels & vehicles, traffic demand, infrastructure improvements, driving behaviour and to integrate in the approach all actors in the transport sector, including consumers, carmakers, infrastructure provides and fuel suppliers. FuelsEurope stresses the need for a cost-effective, predictable and technology neutral transport policy to safeguard the internal market and the interests of consumers and businesses.
