Joint letter urging strong EU action to decarbonise transport

04-07-16

In a joint letter with European transport associations, ERFA, representing rail new entrants, calls for an ambitious strategy to tackle rising Green House Gas emissions from the transport sector.

Major opportunities to decarbonise transport must be grasped within all modes, but also with a focus on shifting to cleaner modes. A modal shift to rail in particular for medium and long distance passenger and freight transport can play a major role in reducing CO2 emissions from the transport sector.

ERFA believes that the promotion of a more level playing field in infrastructure charging between all modes goes hand in hand with efforts to enhance rail’s performance and competitiveness.
